Tonight as I tucked my 3 yr old into bed he asked "Hey mama, what does your shirt say?" "It says 'Love Orphans'". "What's an orphan?"
"It is a person that has lost their parents"
"You mean like their birth parent?"
"Yes, exactly that."
"So am I an orphan?"
"No my love. Your birth mom chose us to be your parents and we became your parents when you were born."
"So Jaylen and Darius were an orphan?"
"Yes, before we adopted them they were orphans because they were placed into foster care."
"But now they are not orphans right? Because now we are a family because we are adopted. Me, you and daddy, Jaylen and Darius, and Kiir. But not Nate, he's not adopted, he's just my brother."
"Yes love, we are all a family."
