WAFFLES: So, Glogirly?
GLOGIRLY: Yes, Waffles?
WAFFLES: Glogirly, are you my mom? Because you don't really look like me. You don't even have orange fur or stripes or anything. But I really love you. You know, like a mom and stuff.
GLOGIRLY: Of course I'm your mom, Waffles. I adopted you so that you'd be part of our family and we ALL could love you, take care of you, and spend our lives together.
WAFFLES: So even though you're not really a cat, you can still be my mom? Like forever and stuff
GLOGIRLY: Forever and always. Forever and ever, Waffles.
WAFFLES: And so you're Ellie's mom too, right? Forever and everything?
Happy Mother's Day X4!
You could say Glogirly has 4 moms!
Her mom-mom, who along with her daddy adopted her when she was little like a kitten. She's lived more years without her than with her and even now, misses her so much.
Her birthmother's sister (Dorothy), who Glogirly met 16 years ago and immediately bonded with. Her positivity and joyfulness are infectious. She welcomed Glogirly into her family with open arms and an open heart. Dorothy has three sons and Glogirly has become the daughter she never had.
And finally, her Godmother, Barb. Their mothers were sisters. Glogirly's mom was the youngest and her Godmother's mom was the oldest. Growing up, Glogirly always knew that if anything ever happened to her parents, she would go to live with her Godparents, who have always loved her like their own. When Glogirly was just 24, she lost her mom (her mom-mom) to cancer. A few years later, she and her Godmother became very close and today they are closer than ever. Glogirly loves her with all her heart...and so does Waffles! She will always be a mother to her.
