March 3 ~ What I want to remember about today

There have been some big changes at our house this evening.  At the end of the work day, children's services called to report that they had picked up Julia's little sister.  Why they ever left a child behind in an abusive home will never be understood.

Would we foster?  Well, how could we say no?  All the conversations and worries and bad dreams...  When we told Julia, she was speechless -- absolutely speechless.

Danielle is 7 and it has been almost a year since she saw her sister.  They ran to each other and hugged and hugged.

Danielle: "You went away and you were gone forever."

Julia: "I wasn't gone forever.  I'm with you now."

My cup runneth over.
