In the next 7 weeks our little girl; our daughter will be going home to her forever mom. It will be 10 days short of a year that she has been in my home and slowly became my daughter. Although she is only 3 she has more spirit then most anyone I have ever met. She knows her mind and doesn't hesitate to share it with anyone who will listen. I know I am losing my heart to this 3 year old and her 6 year old brother. I know that a bit of me will go with them.
B "Mom, I can't call my Mom Heather anymore."
M "Honey you shouldn't call her Heather. She is your Mommy."
B "But her name is Heather." (Said with quite the attitude)
M "Yes but what do you call me?" (Thinking I had outwit this creative 3 year old)
B "Mommy. But you are my Mommy and she is my Visit."
Now I know that this little ball of energy loves her Mom. I know that her parents have done what they need to get their kids back. I know that the bond they have is amazing. But sometimes even knowing these things doesn't stop you from losing your heart. So for today I am Mommy and she is Visit. But I also know that someday soon I will be a memory and she will be their forever Mommy.
