“Mom?  Why you keep me forever?”

The question is happening all the time now.  She loves to retell the story about how we went SO FAR, allllll the way to China to get her.  How we saw her and said, “awwww”, and how we said, “Yes!  We want HER!”

She knows we did.  She wants to know why.

So, she asks.

And today, before I could say anything, all of the two brothers and one sister chimed in with their thoughts…

“Because we love you!”

“Because you’re cute!”

“Because you are crazy just like us!”

“Because we are your family.”

Exactly right.  All of it plus some.

Because, if I really think about it, I cannot imagine our family without you in it.
