Tucked away safe, not forgotten
Lily carries her special guy Jake around wherever she goes. Yesterday, I found him smooshed into the storage compartment of her car. At first glance, it might look like she forgot about him. Then you'd realize that, because she loves him so much, she tucked him away in a special place where she could carry him with her wherever she goes.
Just because you don't always see something, doesn't mean that it doesn't hold a special place in your heart. I've been thinking a lot lately about Lily's brithmother and the unbelievable gift she has given us. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her and the loving choice she made for her dear, sweet baby girl. I want her to know that Lily is growing, and striving, and funny, and affectionate. She is strong willed, and at the same time, sweet natured. She loves life, and animals, and funny faces, and water. She fills our lives with constant laughter and love. We simply cannot imagine life without her in it. Without J, none of this would be possible.
J, we want you to know that we carry you in our hearts always. You are in Lily's heart, too. The 3 of us love you and care about you very much.
Happy girl Lily:
