She was born with the desire to mother.
She cuddles them. Pats their backs as she holds them close to her shoulder. She knows them by name.

I always said I wanted 12 kids. And I still do. But what I want has been broken down and restored to say "I want endless." Not quite Duggar Style, but endless. Biological. Adopted. Fostered. Or just born in my heart. Endless.
And that desire to love on children I see shine brighter in my little one. And even though playing with dolls is a natural developmental stage for little girls, I see her embrace it as if they were real. I see her concern when she is cold, because to her, they are cold too. I see her face scrunch in a frown when she senses that they are hurting.
She's expressing her love for them. Each and every one.
She is meant to love in ways far greater than I can comprehend. She is meant to be someone special in the hearts of many. And even if her name never gets famous or her face recognized from a crowd, I know that she was created for something great.
Oh, and friends, before I go, I'm over at Kel's blog, Then There Were 5, today! She's asked me to write something that is incredibly personal and incredibly important and I'm humbled that she thought my response to her interest would be of worth! So I would LOVE it if you checked her out, because even without me, she's SO WORTH IT!
Remember seeing those links at the bottom of my posts? Well, they'll be coming back soon. Real soon.
