We were told by our previous case worker that he had never seen a child in the foster care system who had so many people who loved her. That has not changed because of the mistake made one night. We love Brooklyn like nothing else in our lives. She is a true gift. As I said before, as a lesbian couple we cherish the fact that we have a little girl to call our own. We never took her for granted and we appreciated every moment with her. We want our little girl to come home to the people who love her more than anything else in this world. We will not, we cannot, stop fighting for her to come home. Brooklyn has already missed going to the Cenotaph service, the tree lighting, the Santa Claus Parade, and playing in the first snowfall–all things she would have done with us and has done with us since we have had her in our lives.
