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.
