Sisters Sisters, There Were Never Such Devoted Sisters
I hope and pray they can grow close together and be best friends. Growing up I always wished I had a sister. I didn't get my sister until I was away in college and while she is not literally my sister by birth I have thought of her and considered her my little sister for years now. I remember the first time I used the word sister for Sami. The twins were born and she was visiting us at the hospital with my parents. A nurse asked who everyone was and I said this is my mom Karen, and dad Al and this is my Sami. The nurse looked at me and said and Sami is. I said Sami is well, she's like my, um well Sami is my sister. and Sami shook her head in agreement and from then on I have never thought of her differently. I am so proud of the young woman she has become. She is so resolute and confident, and such a hard worker. I look forward to watching her grow and change now that she is moving into her adult years.
