And I bawled when I finished it! I'm so very glad I did this for him.
You know, when most of the children I watch leave here, I still get to see them, so it doesn't hit as hard. But this one is moving across the country, and I know I'll never see him again. It's a very different kind of sadness.
I did 40 pages, not including the front cover and back cover. It was quick and easy- nothing fancy at all, but it was done with love. My main goal was to make sure he had something to remember this time by. He's only 3 1/2, and it's hard to remember things from this stage of life as you grow up.
Kacy will miss him a LOT! She's already talking about sending him pictures! So that will be good. Hopefully we can stay in touch, but you know how that goes sometimes.
