When David and I were first married, I desperately wanted to get two cats. For years, I had wanted to have a cat, but since I was in college (and then graduate school), I didn't feel like I was in a stable enough situation to have a pet. So, within a year of getting married, we set out to find two special kitties.

We contacted a cat rescue and they invited us to come and meet all of their cats. When David and I saw these two beauties, we knew that they were the ones. Soft, silky fur. Amazing gray-blue coloring. Sweet dispositions.
And three legs each.


They were exactly the ones that we wanted.


When people asked about our cats (and their missing legs), I would respond, "Someday we may have a child with special needs, and I want that child to know that we chose these kitties. We think that they're perfect. They were exactly what we wanted. Exactly."

For those of you who know a little bit more about our sweet R., you'll understand why these kitties have a special place in her story.

Yes, our sweet girl is also just perfect.
She's exactly the one that we want.

Okay, at this point I am dying to see her photo! I know there are restrictions on that until she's legally yours . . . but my curiosity is making me crazy. :o) I can't wait until you're free to show your sweet daughter to the world . . .
