|RIP: Burying my brother's ashes.|
|It's a girl! Me, Leo, & Freddie, after|
the adoption papers were signed.
We re-named her Freddie (after the character Freddie Brooks from "A Different World", played by Cree Summer), and it's been a joy having her as a new member of the family. She's a very curious, sweet, energetic, and slightly nervous bunny. I look forward to getting to know her better and seeing her personality develop.
Today is Monday and I'm still somewhat spent - emotionally, physically & spiritually - from the weekend's activities. The lesson learned: The reality of life is that everyone dies. I may have lost my birth family to death in the past few years, but at the same time my husband and I have cultivated a family unit of our own. I am proud and humbled to be a part of the loving home we're building for ourselves and our four-legged children.
