She was so excited to go on a date. I was too, especially because I talked her into going to get sushi with me.

At the time I had no idea that at the end of our time together we would have a connection that strengthened our mother-daugther relationship.

She asked lots of questions and I answered to the best of my ability.  At times she blushed and at times I’m sure I blushed.

As we left the restaurant she grabbed my arm, held on tight and told me she loved me.

I responded by giving her a huge hug and telling her that I loved her too.

Then we both laughed.

“I like that we can sit and talk about these things,” she said with a giggle.

“Me too.”

I miss my Abigail!

  1. Thank you for showing me that this type of relationship is possible with your step kids! I’m trying!! And letting them find their own voice. ❤️
