Tender Mercies

After 4 long years, my sister Nicole has contacted my family again. Not a day has gone by that I have not thought about her, wondered about how she was doing or hoped that she knew how much we love her. Since New Year's Eve 2004, Nicole has missed 2 weddings (mine in August 2005 and Kymry's in May 2006), 3 nieces and nephews being born (Liam in Nov 2006, Kaylin in Nov 2007 and Sydney Oct 2008) and countless holidays, birthdays and memories. I am so happy to be able to have her back in the family as she has been like a piece of our heart missing all this time. It is truly a blessing from God and a tender mercy as I have been less than excited about this new year of uncertainty and anxiety. This is a true joy and brings a lot of hope and happiness for the coming months. I can only feel deep gratitude and joy at this latest development.

WOW!! Meg! I'm so happy that you are able to see her again! You two look aLOT alike!! :) It's hard when family isn't around. But now you'll have some good times making some good fun memories together!! :)

Nicole is looking great, and her fiancee is very nice. Her children are wonderful and I'm so glad that we got to see them! Hopefully you'll be able to see them soon as well (perhaps through webcam?).

I really truly agree. It has been so odd to endure the not-knowing. I know I'm only the adopted sister, but Nicole really made my month if not my year. A complete family is a complete heart.
