I don't have any kids of my own yet; I'm due in July. But I have never been closer to or more in love with any children more than these two. I have known their mother for over 15 years, and known both of them since birth. What's more, when their mother went to basic I cared for them for 10 weeks - from waking to bed time, we were together. And I haven't seen or heard from the kids since their mother finished basic. It still hurts a lot to think about them. I don't believe I can ever remove them from my heart. They are amazing little girls and are the closest I've had to children of my own. Until our baby arrives, anyway! We don't get a "picture" of him/her for another month.
It's a horrible kind of heart break - almost worse than losing someone to death, because you know they're still out there and all you can do is wonder (and in my case, regret keeping my mouth shut about what an absolutely horrible, cold, emotionally abusive mother she was to them).
It seems like this pregnancy flew by until I got close to the date to hear the heart beat for the first time! Now I'm four weeks from finding out when we'll see our baby and I'm already going crazy! I can't wait
Here's one of my other "kids" - her mom and I have known each other since I was born. She's the first I've gotten close to since 'losing' the girls. It was hard but she cut through all my defenses. And she can be one heck of a handful (I call her the Zoey Monster) but she is such a charmer. She absolutely melts my heart when she says, "I love you Atchee."
Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
