I got a precious card from my girl Aaren. I've been carrying it around for 2 days. She mailed it by herself & didn't tell her adoptive parents!! It says "Thank you for taking care of me all years until we were seprated (adorable mis-spellings) I relly mss you Mommy but mabbe we cod see each other again some day. Love Aaren" I've been alternating between thrilled that she loves me & sad that she is upset. She drew a sad face with tears. I wrote her back & told her how proud I was of her, & how I cherish her every second of every day. How sorry I am that the world tore us apart. I couldn't stay in the same town with soneone my daughter called 'Mom' It hurt too much. I'm getting her a pink Zhu Zhu hamster for the Solstice which is the 21st of December. Its convincing the adoptive folks who I also love dearly to let her open it on the 21st instead of waiting til their "Christmas" thats hard. I always get Dad a weird looking necktie every year. WAAAAAAAAHH!!!
