On Becoming A Family Part 2

I knew I would love the girls.

But a mom loving a child does not a family make.


I did not expect the boys to fall in love too.

But fall in love they did.

And foster babies became foster sisters.

And foster sisters became baby sisters.

And again, we were become a family

But forever was not an option.  Forever was an impossibility.

Until one November day.

So beautiful! How do you ever keep yourself from nibbling off Miss Jayde's cheeks? I want to pull her through the computer and give her a kiss. Then there's Miss Taya's precious sprouts (her curiosity just shines through the computer) and BOTH of their eyes! My word! Lovely.

oh my gosh i am so so beyond happy for you. ive waited, reading your blog recently and been so scared for you. dreading what i would come to your site and read one day-that 'one of those things' happened and your girls were gone... im almost in tears looking at the pictures, i could not be happier for you and your boys, to officially formally and forever welcome your girls into your family. did i say forever? words cant express how happy i am to finally see their little faces, learn their names, and i look forward to getting to know them more through your blog, thank you for writing and including me and every reader here in your life. congratulations to all of you, and i thank their birth mother for the difficult selfless choice she made
