& yet it's the very kitchen that haunts my dreams, keeps me from a good nights sleep and makes me question the future. There are several uncertainties in our life, but there are also many certainties that I know I can always count on. One of which is the adoration of a man who finds life with me to be grand, 3 boys who are always ready for a good time & one little princess who has more love waiting for her than she can imagine. We no longer look at her photos and think about her, we now talk to her.....as if she's right here.
This has become our favorite photo of her. Gawd, just look at that face..... C did the 'school news' today and it was a live broadcast into all the classrooms. He brought his sisters pictures, showed them to the entire school and spoke about the orphans in China that are waiting for forever families & he specifically talked about his sister, Emerson. My dear friend called me from the school to tell me this took place. I did not know this was going to happen or I might have better prepared him, however, C knew his stuff and apparently the entire school is now educated on Chinese adoption & how much he loves his sister.
G wrote a 'love letter' to his sister, that his younger brother found & showed me. I gasped while listening to how my son poured his heart out on sheet of paper to the sister he only knows in his dreams and his devotion to forever protecting her and how much he already loves her.
W offered to give her all of his jammies since I told him she just might to sleep naked since all the female jammies seem to be 'uncool' for her style.
We had printed out special photos for the boys to carry with them and I am guessing they are in their backpacks because among all the things I clean up after them, it's never been the photos of their sister.
So though life is filled with many twists and turns, it will never replace the steadfast love that has become our family unit. Now where is our TA?
