  24. Mrs. Mike,

    I thought the same thing about the scarf. How beautiful.

    What a flood of memories this has brought me. Even though our adoption was different, it still reminds me of how my heart was ready to explode out of my chest so many times.
    What else can you call it but a miracle?
