In our family, each child has a special day, their Family day; the day we celebrate all our child's family, the first ones and seconds ones, the ones here in the Marshalls and the ones far away. As Family day approaches, we'll make a point of reading a child's Special Book, one that I made that tells their story and has pictures of everyone who loves them. We'll talk about their adoption day and remind them of how happy we are to be a family. On your Family day, you get to pick what we have for dinner and what we do as a family that evening.
This past weekend we celebrated Fire's third family day with homemade chicken nuggets and mac and cheese while watching the Avengers, one of Fire's favorite movies. I can't believe that it's been three years and at the same time, I can't believe that it's only three years. Fire, you're amazing in every way and our family wouldn't be as wonderful as it is without you!
