I mentioned to the social worker that at some point, I thought it would be wonderful if mom could give this move her blessing to the girls. Tell them, “Croi and Erat are nice people and I am glad you all can live together…”
She looked at me like my bleeding heart was going to grow right out of my forehead.
I said, “This is who I am. I aim HIGH.”
She reminded me to keep realistic expectations.
I said, “I do. Low expectations (High hopes) is one of my mottos.”
Then I said, “I bet you didn’t think mom would ever sign a note to us, ‘love’ either”
“Nope,” she said, “I sure didn’t.”
