Sweetie has been a Guardian Ad Litem for 4 years. He's seen some things that would make your hair stand on end. He's seen some sad stories with happy endings. Tonight I noticed the sparkle in Sweetie's eye as he told me about the adoption of a brother and sister - 3 and 6 years old respectively. He told me how it felt to have his legs hugged by kids whose lives have been turned around. He told me about the smile on the new mother's face. It wasn't an easy road to get to today's celebration. Thank goodness there are lawyers, social workers, foster parents and GAL's who work to put the jigsaw puzzle pieces of broken lives back together.
The thought of two little kids with a new last name makes my heart smile,
