… but I’m posting it anyway.
We just got home from an adoption celebration. Our friends officially adopted their little cousin today after two years of caring for her as foster parents.  These friends already had three biological children and two children adopted from overseas. They didn’t really want more children, but their little cousin’s home was no longer safe for her, so they opened up theirs. The family has been through a lot, especially the little cousin, who had to watch as her parent slowly went from a person who promised good, but allowed bad, to someone who seems indifferent toward her.
Today, I just want to say THANK YOU to all the Grandma’s, Grandpa’s, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins who opened your homes to little family members you never expected would need you so much. My family, for one, thinks you rock!
