I have a very special cousin "D" who is more like my little sister. We talk for hours, she makes me laugh, she gets on my nerves... she's exactly like a little sister. She had a very hard childhood but our grandparents stepped in and took her and her brothers into their home. It wasn't ideal but they did their best and got them through school. Eventually D met the man of her dreams and started her own family. Her husband is in the service and they moved to California. That's such a long ways from home in NY state. They have four babies now, ages 11, 9, 7 and 5. They are beautiful, sweet, adorable kids. Our biggest dreams have always been to be mothers and now we are.
