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!!!
