When a series of health issues became apparent, I thought that I would be able to overcome it, but alas, I was not that lucky.
Life also got in the way, time slipped by and before I knew it, I was too old to try it again the old fashioned way. But somewhere deep inside, I knew that I didn't want to give up. I had to come up with another way to make my dream a reality.
I found a way.
Today I have made my dream a reality. I may not have done it like everyone else. I didn't even choose the standard alternative. I went against the grain and did something completely different.
I did it my way.
SO...what have I done?
I became a mommy...a "sponsor mommy"...to a beautiful little seven (almost eight) year old girl named Liliana. She has the name that I was going to give my child, if I was ever able to have one, and I know that she and I are meant to be.
I will share Liliana's picture and story soon...but for right now, I just want to enjoy getting to know all about her.
I still have other ideas on how to feed my desire to be a "mom" to other needy children and am working on putting together a plan to make that happen.
In the meantime, it has been an extremely long week (details of that adventure coming soon!)
Wishing you moments of blissful happiness!
