Our girls arrived that day in May.
Taya was one day shy of 13 months.
Jayde was 9 weeks old.
I was her seventh mother.
We were told we would have them in our home for 3 months.
There were some hard times as they adjusted to our family.
We worked on attachment.
They needed to trust that we weren't just another stop on the way.
By Summer's End we knew we weren't just a 3 month home.
And with time came healing.
And with healing came smiles.
We melded into a family.
