KATIE: So Waffles, you know that Sunday is Mother's Day, right?
WAFFLES: Is Glogirly our mom? Because you know, she doesn't have fur or whiskers and her ears aren't pointy either. She's not even, you know... a cat.
KATIE: Waffles, mothers come in all shapes and sizes. Some have fur, some don't. You and I, we have a lot in common with Glogirly when it comes to moms.
WAFFLES: Did Glogirly's mom have fur too???
KATIE: No, silly. That's not what I mean. You and I both had kitty moms. That's how we were born. Our kitty moms were there when we took our first breaths, before our eyes were even open.
Then when we were each a few weeks old, we were adopted. That means Glogirly and Gloman chose us. To love with all their hearts, forever.
When she was really little, Glogirly was adopted too. Her mom and dad chose her.
WAFFLES: To love with all their hearts? Forever?
KATIE: Now you're getting it, Waffles.
WAFFLES: So since she was adopted too, did she have a kitty mom?
KATIE: Sort of. There was a brave young woman who knew she couldn't take care of Glogirly. Oh, she wanted to. She held her and looked into her eyes only once. And it was with the greatest of love that she gave Glogirly up so that a family could adopt her and take care of her forever.
WAFFLES: So Glogirly had TWO moms that really loved her, just like us. And she's going to love us forever and forever.
KATIE: Forever and forever, Waffles.
Many of our friends and readers who have been with us for a long time have read Glogirly's memoir, Another Mother. It's the true story of how she found and met her birth family. A few years ago, we took a break from our blog and published a chapter every few days. It's still in blog-form, but is on Glogirly's bucket list as a story she intends to turn into a book.
If you have some quiet time this weekend, we invite you to find a comfy chair, with at least one cat, and curl up with a story of discovery and love we hope will touch your heart.
Happy Mother's Day
We're dedicating today's post to mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, teachers, friends... to all the people who have inspired us to be true to ourselves, dream big and who've loved us unconditionally.
It's a beautiful story from a beautiful woman.ReplyDelete

This post brought tears to my eyes. I remember reading your story, and I hope some day, you turn it into a book. Happy early Mother's Day!ReplyDelete
What a lovely story thanks for reminding us. It's my second Mother's Day since losing my mom so I try to put it out of my mind. We wish more people would adopt, fur and non fur babies. Dolly's dog friend Stella has two adopted little sisters which are going to grow up with lots of love just like you did.ReplyDelete
