She lost her mom a few years ago and I could still hear the sadness in her voice when she talked about how things would be different if she was still here.
We talked about how the girls were doing and she was so happy that they had gained some weight.
She could even tell them apart the moment she saw them.
I loved being able to meet her and to reassure her that we would love and cherish these miracles.
Little MiMi as she is affectionately called by her mom looked so much like the girls.
She showed me baby pictures of MiMi when she was born and oh my, same hair and little button nose. She had perfectly braided hair and L told me she would show me how to do the girls hair when they got about 8 months old. We saw pictures of the girls birth father and they had his fair complexion as did MiMi. He was tall 6'4.
We talked about the next time we would see each other and promised to keep in touch.
I want to be able to keep lines of communication open between us for years to come.
This is and will be the biggest gift I can give my girls. No wondering in the future, they will always know who their birth-mom is.
When we left I was mentally and physically wiped out. This was a huge day in our life and I have tons of pictures to look back on. I forgot to ask L if I could post them so in respect of her and MiMi I thought I'd only post a few until I could ask her.
