CJ, my hero.
So I have to tell you about my favorite biggest girl. Her name is CJ. Most of you know that when I was married, I became a wife and a mother at the same time. It was a difficult adjustment at the beginning. I remember being overwhelmed at times. Through it all, CJ has helped me be a better mother over the years.
The other day I was just listening to CJ play with Mia and felt so much love for this kid. She is such a good example to her little sister Mia and trys really hard. Sometimes,CJ can get Mia to do things I can't. For example, getting Mia's nightclothes on. Mia will be putting up such a fight, when all of a sudden CJ comes around and says, "If you put your nightclothes on, I'll paint your toenails." Mia will quickly say, "Okay" and does what CJ asks.
I remember my mother telling me that even though I didn't grow under her ribs that I was still hers and that I was special because she got to choose me. My parents are great examples of how you can love someone as your child no matter how they came to you and no matter where they came from. CJ is definately my girl. Although, she may not share my physical traits (although we fool most people),she is mine 100%!
So you see, I love CJ and yes, she is my hero. The end.
