Mothers’ Day

Six months ago I wrote this.  A lifetime ago.  My sweet Daisy baby wasn’t even a glimmer in my eye.  I truly thought I was losing two of the most amazing souls I’ve ever met.  About to be de-mothered.

Today I walked into that same building and sat in the same sterile, windowless room. 

Except this time when they referred to me, it wasn’t as ‘foster mom’, it was ‘pre-adoptive mom’.  Imagine how good the day will be when it’s just ‘mom’? 

TPR is to be filed by the end of this month.  Which means there is a long road with sad days ahead.  But today we celebrate – forever just may be within reach.
