My Dearest Ben and Sophie

We thought about you a lot today. We went swimming and wondered how you would like that. We worried about our documents getting where they need to go and being accepted. We talked about what life will be like once you are home for good. I have so many questions. Has someone helped you to use the toilet or due to your inability to be independent do you just not use it? Will you want to come home with us? Ben will you say you dont want us to be your family? and what will we do if that happens? And how big are you two now? pictures can be very deceiving! I hope you both somehow know that we are here waiting for you. that we will stop at nothing to get you home with us. We are so looking forward to getting to know you and your likes, dislikes, and quirks. Will you be happy? mischievious? sensetive? what are your personalities like? Will you be able to feed yourself? or will you need help with that? We are so willing to do whatever you will need. If you need help with feeding or toileting we will be here to help you. (its our job you know! thats what parents do!) Mama is very tired tonight after a big day outdoors. So I must go to bed but know I will be dreaming of you both.
Love, Mama
