When we first brought home Aleigha from Guatemala and then 2 years later Mya, my kids were beyond thrilled. I often thought that the excitement would wear off and soon I would begin to hear them yelling "get them out of my room!" or "Mom, they are getting into my things". But honestly even after all this time that has NOT been the case. Today I walked into the girls room to find this: Addisyn talking to them about how beautiful and special they are and putting braids in their hair. Despite the age difference these sisters are as close as ever and I thank God that He builds these close relationships and bonds them together in such a beautiful way. I thank God for my sisters and I couldn't be happier to see that my girls will share that special bonds as well.
Sisters of the Heart
I know you are my sister
thought we do not look the same.
We may have been sent to different lands
but we both from heaven came.
We knew we were meant to be sisters,
cause we are the best of friends...
We're so glad we found our family
A circle of love that never ends.
We have such fun together
best friends we'll always be...
Because I belong to you-
and you belong to me.
