Two wonderful new beginnings have happened since I posted about Sky and I and our argument. As far as the time they took, they were very little things but I'm guessing (hoping?) that the effect they will have on our lives will be pretty big.
The first one is that I found Sky's birth mother. Such a short sentence to capture such a big moment. We've never met Sky's Mommy A but I knew her name so I've done internet searches every once in a while to see if I could find her. I didn't know if she would want anything to do with Sky or us but I knew that someday Sky would have questions that only she could answer, so I kept looking. I was shocked to find an active f@cebook profile for her, since I've looked there before. I sent her a friend request and a message and later in the evening, this happened:
Sky's Mommy A accepted my friend request and reached out to us on a picture I'd posted of Sky. She sent a picture of Sky's brother J and we compared names and birth dates, a round-about way of making sure we were all talking about the same special girl. And we were so she asked about Skyping. I said, "Sure", we traded Skype names, and agreed to talk more tomorrow.
