Did she eat me?

So I know it's been a million years since I updated. I'm sure I lost all my readers anyway! I really wanted to write this down so I don't forget it. I've been worried forever about having the talk with Mira to explain where she came from. I had the perfect opportunity tonight. This is her Birthmom's birthday day. So we made her a video of Mira singing "Happy Birthday" and sent it to her. She sang the song, and then asked who is "My E"? (I don't want to use her full name on here for her privacy) So I explained that "E" is very special. That we can call her the "Belly Lady" because she grew inside "E's" belly. Then God wanted us to be her Mommy and Daddy so "E" brought her to us so that we could take care of her. Mira said, "So I was in E's belly? Did she eat me? Ha ha ha! No sweetheart, she didn't quite eat you, but we'll talk about that a different day! God placed you in E's belly when you were a little tiny baby so that you could grow big and healthy." She looked at me a little concerned and said, "But I want to grow in your belly". That about broke my heart, but I wiped the tear away and told her that God had a plan and that "E" was very special to do what she did. She was smiling and even though I know she doesn't fully understand, it's always been as if she gets it that she is a special gift from God! Happy Birthday, Sweet "E". May your life be as blessed as ours has been since we met you!
