Melting

Baby BlueEyes has a wonderful, wonderful teacher this year. He had her for the last half of last year and Shaggy had her for fifth grade back when we first moved to this town. She really had a unique opportunity to be part of our family's adoption journey to Li'l Empress because of  that overlap. Frequently Baby BlueEye's writing class does journal entries. So, she sent his journal home with him on Wednesday, knowing that I would love to read this one in particular. He's given me permission to share it here.
If I went to a summer vacation, it would be China. I would fly a plane to China. I would bring food and money for the poor people, and bring close and medican just in case I got sick. I would bring sheets, blakets, pilows, and dental stuff like toothbrushes and toothpaste, and face wash. I would adopt an other new little sister. I would go on trips to places like the empers house, and the soldiers tumes. I would visited the hand panted hallway. I would visited restrunts and star bucks coffee but I wouldn't get coffee. I would get cookies and a drink. I would get the first hug and kiss by my new little sister. I would want to name her Rose.

Melting. My heart is melting
in a big puddle right at his sweet little feet.

But he wouldn't get coffee?!?!!!! *gasp* Oh... wait... he's not even a teenager yet. That's okay then.

Just kidding. That is truly precious... a memory for a lifetime. My heart melted.
