Twelve years ago today Ronald aka "Wonald" and Elizabeth aka "Little Bird" officially became ours. After all paper's were signed, two little wee tot's were ours to take home and love. We had a splendid party and fun was had by all. There was a flushed faced baby running around eating cake, cookies and chips and wanting his "sissy" to hold him. A plump, bald headed baby was being held by everyone and laughing hysterically when tickled. That party was so fun and memories are forever en grained in my head. Most people think I don't know what it is to have a motherly love towards a child but I do. I was 16 when Ronald came into my life and for that moment on I found a new kind of love. A love where you don't get sick from poopy diapers or throwing up, someone ALWAYS excited to see you when you go to pick them up at pre-school, thinking you are the coolest person in the world and being your best friend. I have said before that I have a special bond with my baby siblings and that is true. My mom adopting these two precious gifts from God was the best thing that ever happened to us. I get a lot of "hmmpf's" when I say that I helped raise them, I guess people think that if you didn't actually birth them then you can't possibly have a undying love for someone. I was with them the day they came to us and stayed until the day I got married. I have been to numerous doctor's appointments, surgeries, pick up from school because your sick, the list goes on and on. My love for Ronald and Elizabeth is a second mama's love, my mom being the first mama, and will never change. I found a few pictures from the party we had and I can still remember the way they smelled as babies and rocking them to sleep at night. So in 12 years I have accumulated a slew of memories and a endearing love for two of THE most beautiful, sweet, smart, funny and God loving siblings I often call "my babies", because I am the second mama.
