Went shopping for school clothes on Saturday.
I didn't really need to, but felt I should.
I found Converse shoes that were ADORABLE, but pricey.
Found underwear and socks for a good price.
Emma found a shirt and skirt combo that's very nice.
And Josh found his birthmom.
Josh's adoption is technically a 'closed' adoption.
That just meant it was a challenge to overcome for me.
I took the few clues I had and googled it - and found her blog a year ago.
So when I was waiting for Mel to check out, and glanced at the next cashier-
I was able to spot Josh's birthmom right off.
My heart skipped many, many beats and then raced off.
I pointed her out to Josh, and asked if he would like to meet her.
Gathering all my courage, I walked over, put my hand on her arm
And said, "Hi, My name is Wendy . . . "
She looked up, looked at Josh and just 'knew' who he was.
She said it was his eyes.
We talked, I cried, Josh memorized, I thanked.
She's still one of the coolest women I've ever met!
I hope we see her sooner than another 14 years.
I love Target!
