More than once, you wondered what you were thinking.
Of all the decisions in life, you probably thought this was the most sane.
Taking care of 8+ children, not all of them yours, every day it seems.
Happy and sad and terrified in equal measure, this was a normal day for you.
Ever stating you’d rather hear the ‘gosh-awful truth than a pretty lie.’
Really, you were the best thing to ever happen to me.
Where would I be if not for you?
Siblings are supposed to help you build yourself up,
I can certainly see that you took this to heart.
Systems in place have been changed at the drop of a hat, when needed.
Too many of you to thank one at a time, because all five are too awesome.
Even when I don’t know who you are, you make me feel safe.
Reality’s something we face together.
I’d be all alone and lost to the world.
Written on behalf of the awesome women in my life who help me keep my head on straight. (Which is a little harder at times than most people would understand.)

Fitting and beautiful tribute
Thank you. I was a little stuck on maybe doing their actual names, but there are too many of them for that!
Yeah, I liked the way that you did it like this, showing the qualities of what it means to be a family
That’s the way it wanted to be written, but I was pleased with it as well. It didn’t fight me like some of my other works do. *laughs*
Your tribute is so generous. You are an amazing daughter, sister and as we say here Ma Tante (auntie). xx
*grins but still reddens* Thank you!
Ya see how humble and great you are…you are blushing:)
