"You usually have to wait for that which is worth waiting for." Craig Bruce
I recently spent an afternoon with Kisa and her two children. As I approached their home, the first thing I noticed was a heart, made from willow branches, hanging on the door. It was an indication of the warm, loving atmosphere I'd experience inside the house. The afternoon was filled with dance, crafts, Lego construction, and stop animation movie making. At one time Kisa and her husband were uncertain if her health issues would bar them from parenthood but in the end they had these two beautiful children - certainly worth the wait.
What love means to Kisa:
I love being a Mom. At one time, I told myself that if I didn't have kids (for whatever reason) I would be happy. I was fortunate to have a job, a wonderful husband, time and space to be creative. Now, I can't picture my life without my children.
When I listen to them laugh my heart soars with happiness.
I love my son's accepting and kind nature. He smiles easily. I am so proud of his creativity and his perseverance. His creativity shines through when he plays with Lego, and in the stories he writes and the drawings he does at school.
I love my daughter's easy laughter and her imagination. She plays for hours with her toys, stuffed animals. She has boundless energy - wanting to be outside playing. She has an amazing memory for faces and details. Her love of dance and making up moves is infectious. She gets us up moving!
Watching them together play and use their imagination brings me great joy. To see the love they share for one another means the world to me.
I love cuddling with them both and feel so lucky to have them.
