Today was a big day in our household. Little Girl started second grade today! For the first time, I was able to post her” back to school picture.” You see Little Girl was a foster kid up until last February. We had the privilege of adopting her. Kids who are in foster care cannot have their pictures posted on any social media. She started PreK, Kindergarten, AND First Grade while living with us. For three years I had to keep her pictures close to my heart and not share with my family and friends.
As you can imagine, this was very hard for someone like me, who blogs and uses social media on a regular basis to have to do. But it was so important that I stuck to these rules in order to protect Little Girl until we could formally adopt her. So even though I wasn’t able to share some of the most beautiful photographs of her,
All I can say is long may it continue, but not being able to share such photos was nothing short of heartbreaking for me. I was happy to see the other smiling faces of my family and friends. Enjoying their happiness. Well, now it is my turn! So it is a big deal for this momma to share my smart, amazing, bright, happy 7-year-old’s first day of the second-grade photo! Happy back to school Little Girl!!! Have an amazing year!
