163/365+1:Please, Mom, Can We Keep Her?

"NEVER!" This is what I have said when my friends have joked by saying, "When are you getting another kid?"

"Never say never." This is what I have said to all three of my kids, over and over.

Guess which one is closer to the truth.

She moves in Wednesday.

Congratulations! It's a full-grown girl! Your house will never be quiet, will it? And truthfully, you don't ever want it to be?

I think 4 is a nice round number for daughters.

So is 6.

What a dazzling beauty. Where did you find such a lovely child? She is coming into such a loving home, and yet something about that smile says she's coming from one as well. Or, she has a deep well of personal joy that just emanates from within.
