In foster care there are a lot of thing that are not "official".

I am not officially their legal mom.

I am not even officially their legal guardian.

We are not even officially their family.

But, at the ENT this week, when Kobe picked up a book, without being asked, and started reading it to our little kids just because he knew they couldn't read it for themselves, I knew it was official.

He IS their big brother. Regardless of having a paper to back it up or not.

Happy mothers day to you as well :) I hope it was a great one! Even if it wasn't all that restful... lol
