Small can be Huge

In my previous post about being recognized through the eyes of children; this morning I heard a child, who we were watching for the day say to a friend that he had just met, “This is my Aunt Sarah and that woman over there is my Aunt Kay.” Here is the same child who, only last week was legally adopted by a great, caring and loving couple. We get to be their “Aunties”, because our families are connected in a special way. He doesn’t know about my past; he only see’s his Aunt Sarah and I almost broke down in tears of joy. So for me this is a huge acknowledge for me by someone who only some months ago was rejected by his foster mother. Now I get to be a huge part of his life from now on, and I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Don't you just love the way children can see through all the nonsensical cr*p adults obsess about and pay attention to what really matters ? Fantastic!

Sarah, what a lovely story. I'm sure that you will be as much of a blessing to him as he is to you.
