Lizzy is sick.  She has been coughing for two weeks and last night had a temp of 103.5.  She will be going to the doctor today.
I don't know why, but the first thing that comes to my mind is her biological mom.
I cannot even imagine that woman taking care of a sick kid.
I'm not going to go into why because I don't want to tear her down.
I just shutter at the thought of it.
When ever Lizzy is vulnerable her biological family comes to mind.
I just can't imagine what her life would be if she would have been returned to them.

Lizzy says a lot of random things.  This morning she said, "I am so glad that you and dad got married and never broke up."

I am glad she feels that way, but all I could think of was her 'broken up' biological mom and dad.
Yet another thing that she has no real concept of, but for now, I am just glad she has us.

SO many children do not have parents who take care of their children. Thank you for all you do on behalf of children in need of care.
Hope Lizzy feels better soon and none of your other children join her in illness.
Best wishes......

She is blessed to have you to take care of her when she is at her worst. It is the most basic of needs, but, sadly, denied to so many. Hope she's back to normal soon. :)
