What first made me love this photo was the Minnie Mouse ears. Then I read the story behind the photo and immediately knew it was the one.
It reminds me so much of the little girl, Angela, that I fell in love with when I was in Honduras. I feel like she is my family even though I haven't had the privilege of her actually living with me in the States. I can only imagine how much this family loves this little girl and how hard it must have been to watch her go back to live in Mexico. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
This week’s winner is Jenny Taketomo:
Love is this little girl right here in my arms. This angel is Tia, she was my foster niece. She was abused, and spent time in the foster care system till our family took her in. I loved this little girl like my own, and saying goodbye to her was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. She went back to live with her birth father in Mexico.
But in the almost year and a half she was with our family, I learned what true unconditional love was. As much love as I gave her, she gave me 100 times more. For all she'd been through … she had such a tremendous heart. This weekend, she will be four years old, and not a day will go by that I won't think of her. Tia reminds me that there is still good in this world and that love is out there. She makes me believe in love. And I will love her till the end of time.
This is what love means to me. Because the love I gave, the love I received, and the lessons I learned about love from this girl will be something I cherish forever.
