Gingerbread family



Sometimes my children say things which just make my heart go squeeeeeeze with love.
Whilst in TK Maxx S pointed to this pack of cookie cutters and said 'Look mum, a family just like us.'

Adoption is the way G and I chose to make our family.
We have been parents for 10 years now and consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have our little happy family.
BUT there have been various issues from what I think I shall term as outside influences, which have made things decidedly more bumpy along the way tahn anyone could have imagined.
So when S said that, it just reminded me of what we have and how far we have all come. Together.

Awww, that's so sweet. Children say the nicest things sometimes. I don't think it matters how families are made, it's the love within them that's the most important thing, and whether families come together by adoption or other means, having a straight forward ride is quite rare.

... and the loveliest little family I know - exceptionally special indeed. "Outside influences" do threaten us all Lisa in one form or another and a mothers job is it fight them off with a big stick! Sending you all my love from here in the north - my special friends. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
