The Sister I Always Prayed For
Ever since I can remember, I wanted a sister.
I imagine doing her hair and her nails.
I imagined us staying up into the wee hours of the night giggling about who knows what.
Every time my mom would tell me she was having another baby, oh how I would pray that it would be a girl!!
But it never was. >.< (don't get me wrong, brothers are awesome!)
Life went on, but I still dreamed of having a little sister.
Pretty soon I was in high school and the little sister dream pretty much went down the drain.
I mean, I would be going to college and I would barely get to know my little sister even if I did get one.
And then, our family decided to adopt.
A girl of course!
Oh how happy I was!!
I was FINALLY going to get a sister!
I loved my little sister even before I knew who she was.
She and I clicked from the day she arrived home.
She and I are sisters.
I HAVE A SISTER!
And the sister I have is one who didn't have a future.
She was an orphan.
But she's my sister.
I love her to death and am so thankful for her everyday.
This video shows something we do quite often.
She LOVES to be tickled and every time that I tickle her, she says in her adorable little accent, "You funny, Katie!" ;)
I love you, Peaches, and I'm so thankful that God gave me YOU as my sister. <3
