Our last day without Jubilee

Our lives are marked with milestones.  When we look back over our lives, we see the stones standing there, marking the places and the people and the times that changed us forever. 

Today, a stone is going up, and on it is engraved, "Our last day without Jubilee."  Today we have three kids.  Tomorrow we will have four.  Today we have no daughter.  Tomorrow we will have a daughter.  Today I am not an adoptive mommy.  Tomorrow, I will give my heart to a stranger, never to take it back again, and I will never ask her for anything in return.
