My sister

This is my sister, Jade. She is an amazing girl and we have a lot of fun together.
I was reflecting the other day on all the things we have done so far. The list can go on and on but it includes:
Writing stories (our first one was called Mermaid Rock, about two sisters who are adopted by a family of mermaids and start a rock band underwater), singing songs from The Little Mermaid at the top of our lungs on the beach, building a doll house, inventing dances (we made up the lazy dance together--a dance where you flail about your arms and legs without ever getting out of bed), reading books and interpreting poetry with shadow puppets.
She makes me laugh. I love her and I know she is going to do great things.

Happy Adoption Day Jade.

adopted kids are so lucky. they get birthdays and adoption days. i remember the doll house you built. If I could, I would live in it forever. I think your family is so lucky to have each other.

brookster, all i have to say is ignorance is bliss. I knew something was missing, but I just couldn't put my finger on it. You may keep it as long as you want even though it is my most very favorite shades of purple with just the right amount of a plunging neckline for my womanly bodice. But go ahead, let it do you good.
