You Reap what you Sow

I found out yesterday that my stepdaughter has a new baby girl, whom she adopted a week ago when she was born.  Congratulations!  Mom and baby daughter are together at her Mom's.  I'm happy for them and sad for myself.  My stepdaughter and her real Mom are close since her father (my husband) died.  I backed out of her life gradually after he died and she got married.   

I hadn't realized how far.  I found out about her new baby through her Facebook entry.  I've known her and her brother since they were teenagers, twenty five years ago.  They lived with their father and me briefly.  They've grown up to be wonderful adults with families of their own.  I love and admire them from a distance. 

I can only hope they admire and love me from a distance.

I contacted my stepdaughter via Facebook, congratulating her.   I've sent baby Julia a wonderful gift and will call her Mom when she's settled in.
