I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU DO IT....

...is OFTEN what people say to me.

"Look at him"...I say back
as I kiss his cheeks a million times.
"How can I NOT do it?"

"AND" I add...
"I wouldn't have it
any other way."

The Lord gave Ben to you because he knew you could do it, even when the road gets a little rough. Ben has been such an inspiration to all of us and those eyes--they are gorgeous! He is a very sweet spirit with a wonderful Mom and family. Love to you. Aunt Shirley

I love what you say in response.

When we were foster parents, people would tell us all the time, that "I could never do that, I wouldn't be able to send them back, that would just be too hard" Well yeah, it is hard, it is really, really super hard. But someone has to take these kids and love them. If no one wanted to go through the pain of sending them back where would the kids be"? And...I just wanted to say, "so what... you think I have no heart, that is why I am able to do this?"

Just when I am feeling snarky though LOL!
