We are happy to parent sons. Really happy. Our boys... they're awesome. Kind, smart, athletic. My mother-in-law always said they each collected the best of both of us.
Over the years we've collected some girls to love too. The girls are daughters of friends or employees or relatives. Now and then, the girls enter our lives because they care for our sons.
Last night we went out to dinner with the exchange student who has become our daughter. We love this girl and will keep her in our lives as long as we can. She brings so many wonderful things to our home. She sings. She dances. She giggles. How anyone can not love her is beyond me.
We are going to be so sad when she goes home.
