We were over at my SIL's house on Sunday. It was nice, MIL was there as well as SIL's two grown daughters.
Then.....one of them said "Does Joanna still get a knot in the back of her hair like her mama's?"
I smiled and said, "I never got knots in the back of my hair.......but her biological mother does."
But I was dying inside......seems that no matter how long or what's done.........to his family, Miriam is the mama. I'm just his wife....who's taking care of Joanna.
Joanna will know she's adopted........in our own time. But this is not the first time they mention Miriam as her "mama".....
I wish they could at least respect my feelings. Its bad enough that I fear for the day Joanna yells at me that I'm not her real mom.....and i've heard stories that it will eventually happen in the heat of a moment.
I guess all I can do is continue to love my baby.........she is my baby....I felt it the second I saw her 4 1/2 yrs ago.
I just wish I didn't care what his family thought.
OUR WEDDING!! - Well it's been awhile since I've blogged about anything...and trust me sooo much has been going on...Mario started High school, Nathalie is off at colleg...
