A TALK WITH A 6 YEAR OLD

Ian walks into the room (looking sad) and climbs on the couch.

Me: Hey buddy, what's up?

Ian: I want Ava to come home RIGHT now!

Me: You and me both, buddy. It's taking just too long.

Ian: Why???

Me: Oh, Ian....I wish I knew......

Ian: I want to be the FIRST one to make Ava smile when we get her.

Me: I have no doubt in my mind .... you will be! Sniff.

What a precious little guy! If must be so hard for them to try to understand the why of this long wait when we ourselves have a hard time comprehending it.

Hugs to you all!

Heart wrenching!

I was just sitting at Chris' baseball practice thinking about how last year I thought I would be sitting with Hope in a stroller for all of his games this year...

Now I'm worried about next year's games...

Big sniff!

Reminds me of Francis who is also 6 - he also says these things - he can't wait to feed her and bathe her - he draws the line at diapers though!!
