This is Us, Part 9

What makes us a family…

Isabella Savage is the OG, our lady Bella actually came before Matt but lucky us Matt loved her too. Bella is my constant, my best gal and I am blessed everyday to still have her in our life. She loves nothing more than cuddling with me while I read at night and early morning love from her Dad. 

 Matt and I adopted our boy Oscar in 2007 the Summer before we got married, we rescued him from a not so lovely home and we gave him a home full of love. Oscar was our boy our bossy hot tempered boy and our love for him knew NO bounds. It’s almost unimaginable to think he has been gone for 1 1/2 years.

 Our big boy Ralph we practically got to raise from birth. We found him when he was 3 weeks old with no home and we took turns bottle feeding him and I took him to work with me for weeks until he was able to be alone. Ralph thinks he is also a weenie and he has the sweetest heart ever. He is the best big brother now and our 9 year old baby brightens our lives.

 Our sweet sweet old man Abner, he was the glue that tied us all together. He was always down to be snuggled and loved on and everyone he met fell in love with him like we did. We miss that old man everyday.

Our newest addition is so full of life that it is hard to be in a bad mood around him. Elway is such a lover and he loves nothing more than playing with his big brother. Elway has given us joy back into our life after loosing Oscar and his spirit helped get us all thru loosing Abner. We can only imagine what the future will hold with this one. 

Our animals are our children, they are a true extension of us and we are a family unit. We are not a conventional family but no one could ever tell us that our love for them isn’t strong enough to call us a family. We are lucky to have them all and to have been able to share a life with each of them.
