One of the people I always wanted to meet was Robin. She and her hubby adopted a little heart baby and as I watched their story begin I realised, that to me, heart defects were not scary and it was something I could handle. Maddy just proved that it could be OK and the idea of Rosie was planted. When someone has such a profound impact on your life you need to meet them.
Fast forward 7+ years and this happened:
|Robin and Marty graciously took us out boating.|
|3 peas in a pod|
|Lily loved it|
|Mummy and Daughter|
|Once at our own private beach Maddy built a sandman|
|When there is no snow you make sandmen|
|Lily hunted for crabs|
|and then, once the girls were very comfortable, water guns came out|
|They meant business. We stayed out for a long time and it was wonderful|
|pooped, all three were sleeping. Scroll back to the very first photo.|
We came across a pod of dolphins and then another and another. But trying to get a photo of them was so hard.
|Believe me, these are dolphins.|
|Poor old bird looks like he has gone 9 rounds with Mike Tyson|
|I loved this little bridge house|
|Nothing. no people, no boats, NOTHING. would never happen here|
|Marty was elusive for photos, not on purpose I'm sure but here is proof he was there.|
|Hah, we are all colour coordinated|
|And so we met.|
Yesterday. But not for the last time.
