I often see families in the Blog World and think, "Oh, how awesome it would be if we could live down the street from them!"
Families with a mix of bio & adopted kids.
Some blogs make me think,
"Our family would seem NORMAL if we lived next door to them!"
God gave me an amazing blessing 2 years ago.
Honestly, I couldn't have ordered a more perfect friend.
"Okay, God, I'd like a larger than average, homeschooling, adoptive/bio blend family, with kids similar in age to my kids, and if the mom could sew like me, that would be a bonus."
2 years ago, He brought the M family to town.
And they've been everything I could have wanted as friends.
And now our time is up.
The army is taking them away.
Way, way, away.
And they're taking a chunk of my heart with them.
My girls and I are going to miss them terribly.
And yet I know
Somewhere on the other side of the country, another family is going to be hugely blessed by the M family.
Just like we have.
