A friend of mine adopted a baby boy named Sam, who is now 5-years-old and loves to kayak.
He said to her the other day:
"Mommy, I missed you so much when I was in that other ladies tummy."
I love that. Any parent gets teary-eyed when their kids say the cutest things.
But to an adoptive parent, this one takes the cake. With the icing. And a cherry on top. Add a few rainbow-coloured sprinkles, a dollop of whipped-cream, and a sparkler.
Make that two sparklers.
Heck, make it a whole room full of sparklers.
