A "good enough" mom muses about alpha moms, adoption, computers, the State Of The World, Internet quirkiness, and the Kosmik All
Four years

It's hard to believe that it's been four years since we first met OmegaDotter.  So much has changed, in her life and in ours.

Nanning, China, 12/8/02.  A little 10-1/2 month old girl.  Scared, quiet, determined.  A 43-year-old woman.  Scared, trying not to cry, overjoyed.  A 41-year-old man.  Fascinated, overjoyed, thrilled...scared.

We've done a lot of growing, all of us.  Through teething, learning to walk, learning to talk, tantrums, giggle-fests, quiet night talks, beboppin' in the living room, visiting museums, going to school.

What will the next four years hold for us all?  Who knows.  It's always an adventure.

Tonight, at dinner, we were talking a teeny-tiny bit about China (Mulan has been featured the past few nights Chez OmegaFamily).  She said, "I didn't have a family..."  I told her the whiz-bang digest of how we met her.  She finally said, "I chose you."

We chose each other, Lovey.



Happy "Metcha" Day, OmegaDotter.
