Farewell to Noodle

Dear Noodle,

Tomorrow we wish you goodbye.  Your bags are packed and at the door.

It is fitting that you are starting the next leg of your adventure near Thanksgiving.  We are so very thankful for the gift of time with you.  You brought baby squeals, gummy smiles, and footie pajamas back into our life.  You gave the Nugget the gift of a live-in little brother.  It was an honor to have you in our home, and you'll forever be in our memories.  Our hearts are bigger because of you.  Our lives are richer because of you.

Wishing you health, happiness, safety, comfort, peace, and love.  Have a beautiful life!

Your foster family

  1. Annie,
    I don't have time to comment much but, oh, my heart is crying for you.
    How beautifully you navigate all the emotional stage that life gives you. You are an inspiration to me. You and your little family have the biggest hearts of all. Thank you for opening your home to Noddle.

  2. Thinking of you today. (Well, it's tonight, but that's when I get to get online). I know it may not be the easiest thing to do, but remember this as Noodle goes off to the next part of his adventure through life. The time he spent with you three will help shape and mold the person that he becomes in life. Whether he knows it or not, you've played a very important role in his life. And you will always be able to look back on the times you shared together and remember the smiles he brought, and that he's continuing to bring smiles to other's lives because of you!
    Sending you love!
