"Adopting a Child won't change the world; but for that Child the world will change."

A year ago

One of my best friends passed away. My sister-in-law, confidant, shopping buddy, baby sitter, no1 supporter of Mini's adoption.

I can't believe she's been gone a whole year.

Trish lived in the hills, and will forever remain there. Mr T & I drove up to the cemetery. We bought a bunch of mixed flowers, with bright pink gerbras - her favourite flower. I said to Mr T, I'm so sad that she never got to see or hold Mini. She was so excited for us, and wanted to know everything that was going on with our process to bring home our little girl.

I'm sure that she has seen her, from her front row seat in heaven. But, Mini will never know her voice, or look into her kind eyes.

It still breaks my heart, that you are gone, Trish.

I miss you.
