November 20, 2001 I gave birth to my first child. Four years later Joey came into our lives and welcomed Dominic with open arms. Dominic had Joey longer than any of his biological children. And was always treated as one of his.
This is the price we pay for losing a loved one too soon. The regrets, the unsaid thank you’s. We have to trust that they knew how much we loved them. We have to believe they can hear us at night crying out to them saying we miss them and we are sorry.
This is a lesson no child should have to learn. They should believe we all live forever. They deserve that innocence and misbelief about life.
