Hey ladies.
Just a short intro to the group
I am  45 (46 in May).  I've been married for 10 years this year.
My oldest daughter is nearly 16. She was my only child until February 2008. Our small family of 3 agreed to take care of a 4 month old baby girl. She was placed in our care. It was suppose to be a temporary thing, but a year and half later she still lived with us. She called me Mom and my husband Dad. That year we petitioned the court for guardianship of the little girl which we were appointed. The biological mother didn't bother showiing up. She has a on-going battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
So, at 41 I found my self the mother of a 15 month old!
She's 4 now and she's such a joy. I love watching her grow! She is the exact opposite of my oldest daughter who was always so quiet and reserved.
I never thought I would have enough love for 2 children - but that is so not true. My heart just grew bigger and keeps growing as the love for my children grows each day!!!

 What a wonderful story that you have! Your girls are beautiful and I am almost going along the same journey as you.My kids are 14 yrs apart and they are a joy.I didn't expect to have any more after my daughter and when she was 13, I found out we were expecting again.It was a shock! I would not trade it for anything-she is 18 yrs old and my son is 4 yrs old.It is a wonderful age!

welcome to the group and I look forward to getting to know you!
