Family can be a blessing. Family can be difficult. Found family, however, is different because it has been chosen, and because it fits just right.
Tomorrow, we lose our Tina, our grandma Tina. She goes back to Denmark. She goes back to her family, her son, her mother, her brother and niece.
She is the grandma that my mom would have been. And that warms my heart.
I will miss her.
Penelope will miss her.
We won't see her for at least a couple of years. But no matter. We have had her here, and will always have her in our hearts.
