When you are part of a family, you get to be part of a community that loves you.
You get to be held a lot by dear friends!
You get to have a really pretty doctor named Katherine Welch who does amazing work with this organization that she founded http://www.globalhealthpromise.org/ Plus she makes house calls.
You get to sit on the lap of a sweet Korean mom at PFA meetings.
You get to meet other sweet foster moms and their funny foster sons.
You get to practice sitting with your very cool 姐姐
Sometimes you get to take naps on her bed.
Your family thinks you are pretty darn cute..even when you wake up at 4:30 AM.
You get to eat when you are hungry and your family is willing to help you learn how to eat, even if the food dribble out a little.
You get to have a cat that is jealous and sits in your chair.
You get to go to friend's houses and sit in their high chairs and play with their other children. It's great practice for a time when you will be with your forever family.
As this little guy stays with us for a short portion of his life, the best gift we can give him is love. To teach him that he is valuable and lovable. To give him the opportunity to be loved by us and by others. To let him love us. Love-that's what it means to be part of a family.
