Wandering Through the Darkness

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

Shortly after our third child was born, we received military orders to move to a new state. It was a heartbreaking move for us because we had been deeply attached to the church and friends we were leaving.

Making the move even more difficult was the fact that our precious new baby was not a good nurser, and she never slept. Never. I was exhausted and lonely.

When we finally arrived in our new town, I felt very isolated. Our two-year old son was exhibiting classic signs of autism while our newborn was colicky. For thirteen months.

I couldn’t leave the house without help from my husband or our oldest daughter because I couldn’t manage these two difficult babies by myself. The result of this isolation was that I didn’t have any friends and sadly, I lived for the days when our son’s therapist would come into our home just so I could have some adult interaction.

Hello. My name is Pitiful.
