A Letter to Squish’s 1st Mom

This is something that I’ve been wrangling with for a while. Then Mimi at I Must Be Trippin, who’s Bug is Squish’s Forever Day Twin, wrote a letter to Bug’s birthmom after his adoption was finalized. The whole story was inspiring.
Then I spent my first Mothers’ Day weekend as a no-adjective mommy. It honestly wasn’t that different from the last couple of Mothers’ Days (the ones since we started fostering). Except that I couldn’t stop thinking about my boys’ first moms.


We have limited contact with Squirm and Lil Bit’s first mom, since Lil Bit’s case is ongoing (I promise an update soon!). In fact, we’ll see her in court tomorrow and give her a little Mothers’ Day gift of Lil Bit’s framed footprints.

But I’ve never had any contact with Squish’s 1st mom, other than the day she surrendered him and said good-bye to a baby who really didn’t know her, all without being allowed to touch him.

I really want to send her a letter. She’s still a guest of the state and I have her address. I don’t know what I’m going to say yet, but I’m pretty sure that I’m probably definitely going to write to her….

Hint:
It has recently come to my attention that not all of my readers can easily tell when I’m being sarcastic. That is truly unfortunate, so finding a solution was imperative. ^Obviously, the easiest answer is to assume that if something can be read with sarcasm, it should be;^; but that’s not really workable, I guess. After reviewing several options for a “sarcasm font”, I’ve come up up with my own system. Whenever you see italics inside carrots (^snark^), that is my “sarcasm font”.
