David and Me and Katy makes three
The day I was told you where coming to the earth I knew we would raise you.
And you would become our daughter.
The day you were born I cried when I held you. You were so small and so fragile.
Little did I know the spirit, strength and love you would bring to us.
Little did I know the determination and feelings of love, we would have for you.
I felt sadness for your birth parents when you were taken into state custody
They could not deal with their problems, let alone be able to take care of you
I saw them hurt and try not to give you up. I knew it was all part of Gods plan that they would lose you.
Little did I know or even understand my own feelings
Little did I understand the bond I had with you.
It is hard because I care about your birth parents, and you, knowing in my heart you needed to be protected from them and needed love & security they could not give.
Many tears and guilt have I felt, because the life you could not have; will you understand or will you hold it against me.
I have had to do what was best for you and not them.
How can a mother choose between her children for you all are mine.
Little did I know or even understand my own feelings
Little did I understand the bond I had with you.
What I went through to bring you to into our home, many have done before.
The challenges are great, the stress real, the frustration more than most can bear.
Our lives have changed so much, other plans we had and made our
other children already raised but You needed us and we needed you..
Little did I know the spirit, strength and love you have and have brought to us.
Little did I know the determination and feelings of love, we would have for you.
David and Me and Katy makes three.

    It is beautiful and so sad. I'm sure she will understand one day and she will be OK because of you. Take care of all of you and may you all be blessed.

    Nice blog. I was adopted and raised by my grandparents and would take any of my grandkids in a heart beat to raise. It takes a special person to open their homes once more after they've already raised their own children. Blessings to you and yours.
