THE BIG DREAD....

Once upon a time there was a family of like a zillions cousins (47 to ge exact) who grew up and had kids of their own, who had kids and so as not to let their tribe disappear, they had large families..... LOUD. FUN. TALENTED. but tons of them. One day after many years, the Matriarch decided that it was time once again to gather all together. Far and wide these cousins gathered bringing salads, cookies, brownies, baked beans and chicken. They fested and played and chatted and got reacquainted with each other. And in the mist of this fun, there was one girl cousin who did not add to these numbers.....for she had not had children. She was much loved and cherished by these cousins, and there was a loud cry that went far and wide when this loved cousin decide to adopt a daughter from China. The cousins cried "Bring her a daughter from China!!! Everyone is welcome to join our tribe!!!" The long wait between the proclamation had passed, and at this gathering everyone anticipated the late arrival of this beloved cousin, with the wonderful news of a babe soon in her arms. Each one of the cousins approached lovingly and hugged and asked. Each one of the cousins were interested and supportive.....not one cousin professed that they knew a thing about International Adoption, or had stories to share of others. Each cousin had words of love and hope..... And the girl cousin went home with love in her heart and renewed hope that her dream of adding to this tribe will become true. And she lived happily ever after that night blogging about this great time.
