My "Other" Children

This is the first time I am joining up with Leigh for her happiness project. I think it is wonderful and should have done it sooner. Anyway, this is one thing that makes me happy. My "other" children. See, I was able to have one wonderful child and he has Fragile X. The risks were too high for me to have any more. That about broke my heart. But thankfully my big brother stepped in to take care of the situation. He and his fabulous wife had 5 fantastic kids for me. LOL These kids are the great joy of my life. I love them all as if I had given birth to them. I am so glad my brother and sister are raising them because I think they are doing a better job than I could. These kids are fantastic.
