My daughter

On October 11, 2012 we adopted our former foster daughter Eva, now 22 but was 15 when we first met her back in December 2005.  Presently, she is living with us and will soon give birth to her baby daughter, our grand-daughter.  She is due on February 18th.  My husband and I are very excited to be grandparents, especially since we never had a chance to experience little ones of our own.

Eva had a great time at her baby shower last Saturday.  I was very surprised when I didn't feel the urge to cry when I was reminded that I never got to experience what she was then experiencing.  I was so happy for her as a mother that I was simply okay and I knew that I was soon to be a grandmother and very involved in my grandchild's life.

I was briefly upset when Eva told me she was moving out after the baby was born in order to be able to live with the baby's father and try to make it own their own but I know that Eva will visit often and will sometimes need a baby sitter so I am okay.

I still can't believe I'm going to be a grandmother, it blows me away sometimes.

If anyone is interested in learning about how Eva and I first met and how our relationship got started you can read it in my book, "Lost in a Sea of Mothers: Am I a Mother Yet?" click on the Book link above or click on the ebook device you own on the upper right hand side to purchase directly.
