Congratulations! Especially the singing together round the cake. That will be remembered in years to come - ours can remember annual celebrations with great clarity. What a long way they have come, and what an amazing parent you are.
Mum to AS (18) at home and AD (19) staying put in foster care.
Bought tears to my eyes. You are doing a wonderful job of being their parent. And for her to say she'd have been only three is very insightful and probably she is aware of more than just the chronological bit.
Mum to AS Big Fish (19, 16 years at home) and AS Little Minnow (13, almost 6 years at home), came separately, and now a wonderful, feisty horse who lets me escape from kids with attitude and the drudgery of disability services and a top of the range adapted van provided by the council fulfilling their legal requirements!
