My Fourth Child

This is my fourth child. She is not really my kid but I get to help parent her. She has had a rough little life. Birth mom, foster mom, adopted mom who died a few years ago, two nannies, and a wonderful new mom. I get to be the party mom. I love her and I'm glad she's in my life!




It was a sea of pink and purple pj's. We had a perfectly pleasant party!

I am so glad that little Claire can have a wonderful woman like you in her life. What a great example you are for her! She will need that in her life. I hope she is doing well!

I just LOVE Claire. She is always so happy when we see her. She knew who we were, and even our names, and greets us at school all the time. Threw me for a loop the first time it happened. I was thinking, "does this kid have ESP?" Didn't yet recognize her from Church, since we'd been here like 3 weeks. She's awesome, and I'm glad you get to do fun stuff with her.

How lucky you both are to have each other!

Let's do lunch next week! I'll get Allison and my sister Michele to join in the fun! Let's do it in your hometown. Wasn't there talk about cupcakes at a bakery you know about?

Lucky Claire! You would be such a fun party mom!

I'm so happy to hear you ordered a skirt from Cynthia! She is a great seamstress and is currently making me a bunch of pillows for my house. I love knowing talented people. It makes my life so much easier.

Wow! What an experience. I'm glad you are able to make a positive difference in her life.

I think you should tell us more about Claire and how you became her party mom. It deserves it's own blog.
