To feeling free again, to feeling proud, to feeling hope:
"It was a miracle in that I could have taken her out of her life and into a life she would have liked a lot. It never happened, but that doesn't mean it wasn't there to happen. All of that has been a brutal lesson to me in not overlooking or misunderstanding what is actually there, in your hands, now. We always think the thing we need to transform everything -- the miracle -- is elsewhere, but often it is right next to us."
-- Jeanette Winterson
