A little about Jolea


I was always told that one day it would click and you would see how attached your adopted child has become to you. I have always thought that Jolea did very well attaching to us and that we didn't have any bonding problems, but I can honestly say I think we have come full swing. She is totally attached to her Mommy. She has gotten to where she doesn't want to leave my side. She will not spend the night with anyone and actually sleep well. She will often wake up and cry for her Mommy. I have to say it absolutely melts my heart. I honestly didn't know that it would feel this good. I can tell she is finally feeling so safe and secure. For so long, when I would carry her to bed asleep she would cling so tight to my neck as if she were scared, and she is asleep during this. Now, she is just so relaxed, she is like a rag doll when I carry to bed. I know this probably sounds cheesy to some, but I know you adopted Moms know what a joy something so simple like this can be.
Also, lately she has been asking so many questions about JoJo. I guess because it was birthday and all. She will ask me everyday, is JoJo in heaven?(as she points up) and then the new word WHY? I tell her the same story over and over of why he is heaven. She is so concerned about him, and doesn't understand why his body was broken. If I had a picture of the sincerity on her face it would be priceless. She is so proud to be his sister, and of course it makes me so proud to hear her talk about the brother she never physically knew like she has known him forever. Oh my and you should see her face when stars are out. She shouts heaven! heaven! JoJo! JoJo! She thinks she is looking into heaven, boy is she in for a surprise when she really sees heaven.

That is so wonderful. I know exactly how you feel, Lennah is the same way. One day a long long time from now Jolea will get to meet her big brother in heaven.

What a beautiful post and so true. One day the wall just starts tumbling down even when you really couldn't tell there was a wall. Emma has almost been with us two years in December and I can see a light at the end of the tunnel....a dim light....but I am running towards it!
