My Bonus Daughter

For thirty plus years, I have been blessed to be the mother of three daughters and one son.  Four years ago, I was gifted with another daughter ~ my bonus daughter, N.  She and my eldest daughter met during their medical fellowship in New York City.  They became good friends and she became part of our family.

As children do, she found a wonderful job on the West Coast and moved away.  It has been a year since I've seen her until today! She came for a visit and it was so wonderful to see her again.  It did this mama good to hug her.  We talked and laughed at my daughter's home.  Baby Sam was quite taken with her. ♥ I was so sad that our visit had to end.

My heart is filled with love for all my children ~ all five of them. ♥

    1. Yes, she was Arlene. Sadly, her real mother passed away last year.

  2. It sure is hard when they move away, I am not looking forward to our daughter moving at the end of the month. Have a wonderful weekend!
