You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
I've known Miss Erica for several years now. We've always had a work relationship and it was so nice to spend a few hours seeing her in Mom Mode! Her kiddos are so sweet and they were very excited to run around the park with me. I sure hope I get to spend some more time with Erica and her family in the future so I can watch them continue to grow :)
