Oh my goodness...Oh my goodness

(Anybody else ever watch the movie Annie?) So anyways, I'm in a better mood since about 4pm. We'll see how long this mood lasts. Here's why...

I'm sitting at my desk working and I see this lady coming towards my office. She looks vaguely familiar but I can't figure out why. She pops her head in my office door and ...

Lady: Do you remember me?
Me: No I'm sorry I don't. You do look familiar though.
Lady: I'm G's mom.
Me: Oh, I'm sorry I didn't recognize you. (I met her one time on Aug 16 here at work when she had G here)
Lady: Not a problem. Are you busy?
Me: Nope. Not too bad. What can I help you with?
Lady:I just had some pictures taken of G and I was wondering if you would like one?
Me: Oh my goodness. I would LOVE one.
Lady: Well I would also like to know if you would like to be a part of G's life? I'm not sure how you feel about that but I want her to know you and how well you took care of her.
Me: (tears in my eyes) You don't know how much that would mean to me.
Lady: Well look thru these pictures and let me know. My son is the one who cleans cars (I did know there was a new kid back there but didn't know who he was) you can either send them with him or I will stop back and pick them up.
Me: Ok, I'll do that. Thanks again.
Lady: You're welcome.

Ok, I should come up with a name for her other than Lady but for now that is who she is. I looked at the pics as soon as she left. she adorable (still). There is no way that I can choose just one. I went to Walmart on my lunch/supper break and bought some photo paper and I'm making color copies of them. That way I can choose 1 to get a bigger picture of and still have all of them. ;-p

If I can figure out how to scan them in at home, I'll upload one to here so you guys can see who the little girl is that stole my heart long ago. Ok I figured it out!! I'm so proud of myself. I won't leave these up too long though. Enjoy.

G was a previous foster child? That must be so hard when the child moves on.

Yes G was a former foster child. She was with us from Jan 06 til end of Nov 06. VERY TOUGH to lose her, but she is in a good home.
