She came in late Thursday night. Oh my! The kids were all so excited to see each other! J and A are seriously like two peas in a pod. They are so much alike and they just love each other to pieces. They can play pretend together all day long. Here they are when they first got to see each other again: so happy!
Here is V in her high chair. She is such a big girl.
Friday night, A and K, C, and J had to say good-bye before K, C, and J went to their dad's. It was hard. I am so glad that they love each other. I am so glad for the relationships they share. But...those great relationships is precisely what makes it difficult to say good-bye. It is so tough.
Below is A saying good-bye to V Saturday morning. I intentionally took the picture where you could not see the anguish and the tears on A's face. It is enough to know they were there. A and I both cried too. I am so grateful that she loves me as one of her moms. I love her just as much as the children I have birthed. I am lucky indeed. I am so glad that I like A's mom. It would be nearly impossible to send her back without the knowledge that she is loved and taken care of there also.
