Katies Family Day

Today was a day to remember the first time I held Miss Katie.  She brings so much joy to us.  She has a smile that seems to stretch to the sun.  

She has been home for eight years and today was a celebration of her family day. It is not a complicated celebration but more a day filled with little moments of remembering the wait and the first time I held her.

I think of her birth Mom and her foster Mom today.  Two women whose hearts paid the hardest cost of letting go.  How I wish they could see her, to hear her play piano, and to sit and cuddle with her. All the privileges that I have and forget how lucky I am at times.

Adoption has become a part of who we are as a family.  There are pieces to it that are unfair and hard and yet if you asked I would not change anything. This little girl was the start of me seeing just how deep love can go and what the true meaning of family is.
