Six years ago today, Elizabeth and I met and became a family. It would be another year and a half before the adoption would become final, but it is on this day, 11/30/07, that I really consider that I became E's mom. I am not her only mom. J will always be her first mom. I love J and consider her part of my family although we've never met.
Some adoptive moms have said they wish their child came from them. I never wish E had come from me. If she had, she would not be exactly who she is, and I wouldn't change one single thing about her.
Happy Family Day! Six years goes fast!
