about 4 years ago my brother passed away. no one in the family was able to take the kids for one reason or another. but they was adopted by really great people. they keep us in the kids lives and let us know everything going on. they are really open with us and even talk to the kids about my brother and keep his memory alive in them. they believe it's the best for the kids to know who their bio-parents was.
my brother left some papers and stuff with my of his oldest girls birth.. crib card, foot prints, all that stuff. i have everything photo copied. and have been planning on sending the adoptive mom a photo copy of everything. but now i'm thinking that "the mom should have the original" and she is their mother and the best mother they have ever had.
my problem is every time i try and package the stuff to send to her i about break down in tears. i can't bring myself into packaging it. i feel like it would make her day.. but i still have this aching in my heart about losing my brother and losing the kids.

Copy or original, I'm sure your niece would love to have it to show your great nieces and nephews - when the time comes. It's got to be difficult to lose a brother. You'll find a time, when you are ready, to send these things. Everyone morns differently. It sounds like you really miss him and don't want to part with his things.
