I was just putting my precious baby down for a nap and had the most amazing conversation with her. Sadly, Grace is not a "baby" anymore. She is 3.5 now, but as all mother's know, she will forever be my baby!
I just wanted to get this sweet heart wrenching conversation on paper, because I'm sure there will be a day, perhaps in the teenage years, when I will need to be reminded of this conversation. :)
Grace: "How did you pick me in China?" (She knows that we went to get her as a baby from China)
Me: "We looked at pictures, and as soon as we saw your pictures, God put you in our hearts."
Grace: "You saw that picture?" (pointing to one of the few baby picture we have of her which we have framed and put on the wall)
Me: "Yes! And I when I saw it I knew you were my baby."
Grace: "I was playing with my toys and waiting for you. I love you, Mama." (Big Hug)
Me (throat closing up and tears welling up in my eyes): "I love you too, baby."
