... of my life, I am blessed with children who I love like my own who are not my own. the joy and pain of being an aunt. these children are so incredible, so amazing, and I miss them, constantly.
if only victoria and vernon were closer to each other.
if only I could see them everyday.
if only I could ever adequately express to them my real love for them, my need to protect them, feed them, hug them, tuck them in and tell them stories, like a mother would.
they are mine in my heart but someone else' in life.
and my heart breaks when they drive away.
