My son just turned 10 on June 17, Among two Birthday parties,family and school friends(pool party). I brought him to Toy R Us tonight to use a gift card. I also bought him some extras, he has been so good. I felt like rewarding him for an awesome school year, promoting to 5th grade.
As we walked through the store, he says to me. "You are the best mom ever" " What would I be without you"? I almost slipped and said what was on my mind. I just smiled and said I am so proud of you.
In reality where would our children be or become if they have not been adopted. My sons both had horrific pasts with abuse,severe neglect. I would wonder if they would still be alive,healthy happy.
My boys are so lovable, always have manners,many other people comment how well behaved and respectful they are. Don't get me wrong, they are NOT perfect, they each have their challenges and can test my patience. They are loved unnconditionaly.
