My lost child Katie has connected with the family a bit.she left home at 15.she made some poor life choices. I have never really understood what happened that she went from a loving child who was loved and cherished to a street kid. Anyhow, we rarely see her. Well she is home for a few days we all had dinner together last evening and today they are coming out here.she is beautiful-a bit beautiful. She still lives on the street living a simple life.last night she said to me ....mom I love you. There could be no better gift in the world than hearing those words. I don't have a lot of expectations for her. It is easier that way. She will likely disappear as quickly as she came. I doubt she will be here for christmas but it doesn't matter. She is here now and that is all that counts. The smiles on her bros and sister's faces was a delight to see. The laughter and the teasing was so lifegiving. Will there be tears in the future - likely. But for now kt is here and that is all that counts. look to the rainbow, mars'

I'm so glad that your lost child has come home, even for a little while. I've often thought of the parents of the kids that I see on the street here in the city. Now I will think of you every time I see a lost child. My heart is with you, sweetheart.

What an amazing amazing attitude. Its easy to think that is how you would like to be - much harder to pull it off - No recriminations - you just enjoyed her.

I can tell you are capturing every moment.....a special mom you are to your kids....
Loving children can be bitter sweet. I am glad you are getting this time together. "Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon." Don't know who said it first but I like it.

Everyone says you have to quit for yourself but you don't have to quit by yourself.

I have a 'lost' child like that myself. I guess I am the lucky one because for thanksgiving she gave me a grandson and now she has moved back in with me. I feel your pain though I know what your talking about. ~Hi my name is Wendy and I am a quitter!~
