For my adoptive peers out there, what do you do to celebrate? Do you celebrate?
It seems almost counter intuitive to celebrate. Adoption always has some loss involved. In kiddo's case, loss of birth family, loss of first adoptive family, loss of her sister S.
At the same time, we all feel strongly connected and like celebrating anything and everything. So, we asked kiddo if she'd like to go somewhere and celebrate and she said yes. We gave her a choice of several places and she's chosen Atlanta.
We're going to go to the aquarium, which her and hubs have wanted to go to forever and maybe to Covington and go see movies/TV shows being filmed and get good food.
Hubs suggested beach and she said "We go there all the time, let's do something we don't get to do".
lol....all the time, really?
Also, we've invited her BFF. It's not just about being family but about her being in a normal atmosphere and getting to be a kid.
BFF's mom said "Kiddo, you're a very lucky girl that you always get to do so many fun things".
Kiddo said "even luckier than I get to do so many of them with my bestie"
