We Are Family


Moments of Wonder

20140315_121005Here are a few of my moments of wonder -

- First of course the Adoption Panel saying YES!

- The first time I lay eyes on my beautiful sons.
- The moment I realised I was totally and utterly in love - instantly.
- The first 'Daddy'.
- The first 'I love you Daddy''.
- A hot little body climbing into bed as I wake.
- Every time one of their tiny hands reaches out for mine.
- The spontaneous kiss brought about from a moment of sheer joy.
- That moment of sheer joy.
- The first painting of 'our family' for the fridge door.
- The first painting of our family with five smiling faces (the cat was happy too).
- When the ONLY seat is my lap, regardless of the six empty ones.
- When I caught them singing along to a pop song (a little less wondrous that it was Gangnam style).
- When they say something really smart.
- When they do that Meerkat thing of looking up straining their necks to make sure I'm still there.
- When they hurt themselves and desperately need you and only you.
- When they hurt themselves and they respond to the magical healing powers of a hug and kisses.
- The first time 'they' remind 'me' that it's time for the bedtime story.
- The first time they pick up a book by themselves and start to 'read' it.
- When they fall asleep in my arms.

- Those certain heartfelt smiles that say 'I'm doing it right' .

- Realising I have everything I ever wanted, but thought that I could never possibly have.
