Today we sent off our itty bitty care package to "ZL." We put just a few items in the one gallon bag, as suggested (and requested) by our agency. There was 1) a baby blanket that T said MUST have a silky side 2)family pictures that are colorful and simple to hang next to our boy's crib. It was fun, intense, humbling, and precious, all in the same moment.
Why the silk edge you ask? When T was a babe his grandma (my wonderful mom) gave him a little baby blanket with silk trim. T loved this blanket and .... well, you know the deal with 15 year old boys - what's good for the goose is good for the gander. "ZL" is the gander, in this case, and he's getting silk trim, I tell you! And, how would you feel looking at this pic all day? Wait! Don't answer!
