because she deserves a mother who...

I began working at an after school daycare program and met this little girl and fell in love with her in an instant. I spent all day with her and then met her dad when he came to pick her up. I fell in love with both of them within seconds. Her father, Tom, had soul custody of her due to her mothers drug problem. Tom had re-married and within 2 years, divorced. Destiny was always confused as to who was her mom. Well, last month Tom and I were married. Destiny has been calling me mom for over a year and we're all so happy to officially be a family. The photo on the right is just after I had read vows to Destiny during our wedding ceremony. I felt I owed it to her as well as her father to make some promises since she's had too many people break promises to her.
