Then I was down the stairs, heading to my car. But something made me stop. This is her home. This is where she lives. It is real. It won’t be the last place she calls home. But in that moment, I recognized that a season of my parenting is behind me. And I lifted up a prayer of gratitude as I slid into my car.
