These are my kiddos. You all know Miss Lucy, and you all have seen Joey before, but I never really explained much about him. Perhaps I was afraid I would be judged, perhaps because the truth is painful. Joey is the son I placed for adoption 18 years ago as a scared young girl. Although he had always just knew me as Jill, he found out I was his biological mother in 2000. I remember that day vividly. We both just sobbed and sobbed. Last week he flew to Ohio for a week to visit with my family. During this time he confided in me that he is angry about me adopting Lucy. I pretty much had figured that out, as he really didn't have much to do with her. I cannot blame him for his feelings, and take responsibility for it. Things were just SO different way back then, and I thought I was doing what was best for HIM. But that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt, and I get that. The night before he flew back to Wisconsin, and said he would let me take a picture of the 2 of them together. My heart was so full of joy! I know he still doesn't fully understand, but I feel this is a great first step. And hey, I will take what I can get. I love them BOTH!
