Then I got teary-eyed while watching 101 Dalmatians, one of my favorite Disney movies and a great story about family and adoption, by the way.
And THEN I was going through photos of Captain’s departure and arrival to and from deployment, because it’s Veteran’s Day, which made me weepy again.

But then I found this long-lost picture of my crazy child.
P.S. I looked into becoming a host home for homeless youth, and we requested more information about the program. In the future, I’d like to adopt through the foster care system. So many children need mothers, and adoption is something very close to my heart. This holiday season, when you are gathered with your crazy relatives, say a prayer for the thousands of orphans and foster children right here in the US that desperately need families.
