Truly Blessed Tuesday... "Mom"

The most interesting comment I 
have received since being an adoptive parent,
is...
"Ohhh, how sweet!  She calls you mom"

I found this very humorous!
Like...
what else would Jailyn and Jorja call me?


Jorja has called me Mom, or Mama
since Dec 29, 2008.
The name "mom" has changed
definition within that time.

Mom -
a woman that brought me some fun things to play with,
and some pretty clothes.

Mom - 
a woman who always has a drink and snack for me.

Mom - 
a woman who makes me do things I don't want to do.

Mom -
a woman who I'm going to stay near 
so I don't get lost of forgotten.

Mom -  
a woman who loves me and 
I like her.
a woman who's lap I want to sit in, 
and arms I want to be cuddled in.
Lips that kiss me.
Love unconditionally! 

Though there are days that her insecurity shows,
I believe she has come to believe, 
not only in her head,
but also in her heart -
that Mom loves her 
and will be here for her!

Let the healing continue!
I am Truly Blessed to be honored to
call Jorja my daughter!
