I went back because I told her I would. I went back to meet the girls
great grandmother. She is family now. She was the only one who didn't agree with our birth-moms adoption plan because she said.."no white folks are going to bring those babies back to see you." She didn't trust..She didn't know us though. Now she does.
So I went back. I walked into a small one bedroom apartment
to see Grandma. She stared at the girls and said
"Lordy me, those are some fine babies."
I couldn't agree with grandma more. She held them and kissed them and watched me be their mommy. I could hear her saying "my, oh my, fine indeed." That's when she looked at me and said, "you've done a fine job. I can tell they're loved and the kids love them. They are healthy and happy." She then asked me to send her a picture of the three of them together and I told her I would.
and I will.
I will be forever grateful for the
chance to be a small part of this family.
We are not that different, she is family and I love her for that.
The girls birth mom was there and their bio sister, Mimi, and so I got their first family
