I waited a long time to write this entry and now that it's here I can hardly believe it..........our precious little Baby Girl, our Flossy, was adopted tonight by a lovely lady.
Today was a regular Saturday like so many others (or so I thought), and yet when I came home from running errands just after lunch and saw that there were two messages on my phone, something inside told me it would be for Flossy. Sure enough it was, and although I tried to remain skeptical that this person would finally be "the one" when so many others have not, there was an anxiousness and anxiety building in me all day that I hadn't felt on previous visits, and so somewhere deep inside I knew.
This adopter was lovely enough sounding on the phone but in person, she was amazing. Already Mom to two kitties and a dog, it was obvious from the outset that she was a very caring, loving person who adored her furry friends, and who would make Flossy a wonderful Mommy. The clincher was when Flossy climbed up onto her lap, laid right down, stretched out her paws and began to fall asleep. It was her way I believe, of letting me know that the time had finally arrived for us to part ways and that it was all going to be okay because she was at long last, truly headed home.
She and I shared alot of moments together in the past eighteen months of her having been with us. I am so thankful to R & H for saving her initially, to J who opened her home to recover Flossy in the beginning and had the caring to recognize that she wasn't feral at all, to the vets who oversaw her care in the beginning when she needed it the most, and to K who has been such a support in all the times in between when I worried that noone would ever be willing to give her a forever home. To Flossy, I am so grateful and thankful and feel deeply humbled that I had the chance to share apart of life's journey with you................and thank you Baby Girl for comforting me in these last few months as the sorrow over the loss of my little sister seemed to be swallowing me whole, and thank you to Heavenly Father for all the blessings both big and small.
It's not goodbye but "see you soon"
Love, Your Foster Mommy
