Missing K

Dear K,

Today, right this minute, is one of those moments when I find myself missing you.

Precious boy, you are no longer "just a foster child" or "a waiting child"-you are HOME.

I love the precious emails and phone calls, I can't tell you how much that means to me and how much I thank you mommy for letting you talk to me. I feel VERY blessed.

I was watching a video you were in, I forgot how little you were when you first walked through our door. You never missed a beat, you made yourself right at home, telling me to "get you some water". : )

I still struggle every now and again about why you weren't meant to be ours, but then I remember how much you loved your new mommy and all the struggles I had in my heart about you and it all makes sense.

You are happy.

You are loved.

You are found.

I hope you are having your best day yet.


Mama Leah

Thank you for sharing your heart. I'm sure I will miss my challenging foster child when she is reunited with her bio family...right now, I just miss the peace and calm that was once in my home. :)
