Best friends

This school year one of my closest friend’s daughters has helped keep Daniel and I company one day a week.


Our Mondays together have included some preschool lessons, lunch time, rest time and of course plenty of play time.

Two precious kiddos, born on different continents in 2008. These “built-in best friends” now live in the same neighborhood, are on the same swim team, and before we know it will start kindergarten at the same elementary school. I watch these two together and their interaction brings a smile to my face.

The way she jumps in and plays monster trucks or tool guy with him without skipping a beat…


The way he irritates her by calling her “Cordie” ~ even though she calls him “Danger.”


The way they create and play with legos for the longest time…


The way they can just sit, side by side, happily together.


Two best friends, brought together through special needs adoptions. It isn’t lost on me how easily they ~ and we their parents ~ could have missed out…
