Missing my step daughter
Sunday, January 29, 2017
Today while I was at work I was told my husband was on call park for me. I picked up right away because he rarely calls me at work. He was crying which he very rarely does. He told me his daughter Karen had passed away. As my mind flooded with memories of her, I started to cry too. I remember when I first started dating her dad and he told me his daughter was also named Karen. When I married her dad our first and last name was the same. We used to joke around about it. I remembered when she visited our house and took silly pictures with my girls. I remembered when she used to call me her other mom and I felt honored to have her accept me. I miss her voice on the phone. She was my husbands child but she was my daughter too- a daughter of my heart.
