March 9, 2012: Between 2 Worlds…

March 9, 2012: Grab your tissues…Cupcake is getting real.

“I know my husband has yet to walk through the 5 stages of grief, but men tend to deal with things differently.  For me, a person that has always been sensitive and could easily cry at the sappiest of commercials — this mom has yet to mourn that loss.”

The way that works best for me is to know that my daughter chose me to be her mother. Probably because she knew I would fight like hell to get her back. Or maybe because she knew that I would try to help other kids along the way. Or maybe just because I needed to grow spiritually. I don’t don’t why she chose me. But I’m just glad she did. I will treasure all the lessons I have learned form her. (And there have been many.)
