Her birthday was the 4th but with work, Leila's birthday, and everything else going on I have not gotten on JM barely at all. I took it very rough. It is so hard to believe that she is ten years old. That is such a big girl.

I sent her some gifts and her and her mom sent Leila gifts! It really is sweet! I struggled so much with what to send her this year but went with a girly monopoly game, a couple of books, some glow in the dark stars, a diary, and a magic 8 ball. She already wrote an email back saying she loved them!

Sometimes I feel like the challenges of keeping this shaky relationship good are so hard. The balance of what is right and what is presumptuous is a thin line. I struggle at every communication with making sure I say the right things. I just want to make that little girl feel secure in my love. I don't know exactly how else to do that.

Anyway it was a hard day as it always is. I cried for the loss as I always do. It doesn't ease the hole but it at least calms the fire.

Yeah, the big milestones are hard. Starting school, ballet recitals (etc), turning 10, turning 15... those are all hard ones to swallow. I know that kindergarten was REALLY hard for me to swallow.

Big We're here for ya...

I think birthdays are always hard, not matter how well you are dealing with the adoption.
Being able to send gifts is a huge help to me though

Same for me! I feel like she needs to know I remember her on that day more than any other day. I sometimes feel like I might step on toes or buy the wrong thing but I throw caution to the wind with something that means so much. And I always include gift receipts lol.
