Related

I just had to make this a post so I can look back and remember this when Chloe is 16 and "bucking all the way."

Yesterday we are eating dinner and Chloe asks, "Mom what does related mean?" I answered, "Well, it's like you are in the same family." She sat there for a minute, SMILED her BIG Chloe-smile, hopped down from her chair and walked the two steps to mine, laid her head on my shoulder and gave me a GIANT hug and said, "I am so glad you got me in China - Thanks, Mom - now we're related."

That girl makes me smile!

Chloe is such a sweetie! I bet that just made your day, Becky. :)

Family is less about birth and more about love. Sounds like you've been given Lots of Love!

Becky, What an adorable memory!!! Isn't it great when God gives you those amazing "paychecks" as a mom?
take care!!

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
~Deuteronomy 24:19
