I am really, really proud of all my kids and all their successes big and small. I think that goes without saying. Yeah we have struggles and challenges as all parents do. And yes we have challenges and successes that are directly related to being a transracial adoptive family or a foster family or parents of kids that were adopted from the foster care system. But that is not the totality of our life. Our life is full of normal things like hockey practices and jumping on the trampoline and playing in the bathtub and running out of milk.
But sometimes your kid just succeeds and is recognized. And I am really, really proud to say that Greg, our oldest son, earned a spot on the U16 BC Cup Zone 8 roster. There were 12 spots for forwards available and he tried out against some of the best 15 year old hockey players in a huge expanse of our province and the Northern Territories that stretched from Whitehorse down to 100 Mile house. It's a big deal in his life and we are very proud of him. It wasn't easy but he did it.
