Oh, how that sweet (yet short) smile and laugh (and the hope for their consistency in the future) must make all of what you're family is going through worth it.

I was adopted (at age 16). Sometimes, I felt "inferior" to the rest of the extended family--like they belonged and I'm really an imposter. So, every so often while I've been reading Ashley's journey, I admit I've thought, why are they still there? What is driving them to stay with Ashley? Would my family give up so much if it was I who was so sick? Because of my past expereinces with rejection, it's like I am just waiting for the one thing that sends a family over the line and makes them want to give their child back. Watching this video here, compared to the ones posted just last month, what a change your little Gherkin has undergone. But what love you still have for her, becuase she's yours, she's part of your family, just as important as your Blake and your Allie. And as surely as I know that for your family, I've come to realize it about mine, also. Ashley, and your family as a whole, have finally convinced me to buy into the "just because you were adopted doesn't mean you are loved less." My parents aren't going to throw me back, just like I'm sure you could never throw Ashley back. Thank you for teaching me that.
