It is with a smile on my face and tears in my eyes that I post these. How crazy is that??!! It's so bittersweet. My heart leaps when that monthly email comes, yet it breaks when I see her beautiful face smiling at me. She's so beautiful and just takes my breath away. It's so sad to see her baby fat gone from her face and that "little girl" look blossoming. Mothers are always saddened when they see their "babies" becoming big kids but it is even sadder when you know these kids aren't with their families- they are growing up 1000's of miles away. And.... this is a really depressing post lol. So I'm going to stop!
