We loaded everyone in the car. We were a bit late getting on the road, but finally set off for 7 hours of driving bliss. Not even 5 minutes into our trip, I looked in the rear view mirror. My view was blocked. Not by suitcases or bags – but by two pillow pets.
It may seem strange to say we’ve waited a long time to have our rear view mirror blocked by two pillow pets. But after dealing with infertility and then going through two infant adoptions, seeing two fluffy pillow pets reminds me how blessed I am to be the dad of the two little ones in the back seat.
