And a happy birthday to our precious little groundhog, wherever she may be. The years go by so fast.

Oh, Steve, my heart just breaks when I think about what you and your family have gone through, and are missing. I cannot imagine.

I continue to hope that you are reunited one day.

Thank you, Debbie. That means a lot coming from you. This is a tough one, because--as I think you know--the birth mother committed suicide eventually, and she wasn't the best of mothers when I knew her (she tried to be, but her demons too often won out), so one can only imagine what little Sophia has already seen/been through. That, in turn, makes me question whether I'd want to "ride in" one day when she's older and show her all the baby pictures and tell her about her early life and the truth of what happened here. I guess I'll have to make that judgment when the time comes. If I'm still around. :)

Wasn't able to read the whole story, because for some reason it cut-off and wouldn't let me continue. But I could see what was coming and it's just heartbreaking. So sorry, Steve.

Thanks LZJ. I'm not suggesting that anyone is obliged to read the whole story, but if you wish to do so, I believe you can accomplish that, free of charge, by following the prompts that ask you to register with "AccessMyLibrary."

Thanks also to those of you who offered your thoughts to me off-line.
