Every aspect of our lives is a balancing act in some form or another. I have tried to only write blog entries when I’ve been in a good mood and had something positive to say. That isn’t balanced. So, today, for what it is worth, I am posting while sad.
The wonderful woman from Jewish Family Services who helped us here locally with our home study and all the flaming hoops that adoptive parents must negotiate prior to being considered for a child, died last night at about 7:30 pm. Penny Glatstein had been a social worker specializing in adoption for more than 30 years. She was involved in helping us find Logan, and also in helping my brother in law and sister in law find their son. She was instrumental in countless adoptions in the Mid-South. She brought joy and fulfillment to thousands of people. Sadly, she lost her battle with cancer last night.
I hope she was or is aware of how profoundly she impacted the lives of those she touched. We will miss you Penny.
