Trip Kimball, thanks for asking. The complicated answer is ‘yes’ and ‘no.’ It took a long time to even realize that what we had experienced was so big and so hard. Maybe that sounds weird, but…that’s just how it was.

My husband and I have been each other’s place to debrief, and he has become one of the most grace-grounded people I know. God also brought several different families and individuals into our lives, at different points along the journey, to foster healing. We have been able to really maximize those opportunities to grow through the emotions and questions. So, ultimately, not formally, but in some senses, yes.
