It hit me today.
This is what I have to look forward to for the rest of my life.
A steady stream of goodbyes.
But, I guess that's what my job is now.
It's my job to raise Alessandra the best that I can so I can LET HER GO.
Let her go to kindergarten,
to her friends house for her first sleep over,
for a school trip,
I just pray that I get all of these goodbyes and many more that I didn't think of. And that I never have to say goodbye to Alessandra for good like I had to with Pearce.
Why didn't anyone warn me how hard this motherhood thing was going to be.
Ga-bye for now.
