"To the moms, who take care of the babies, no matter where they come from. Thank you" - Sandra Bullock, Academy Award Best Actress Acceptance Speech
This was my favorite line during last night's Oscars. I could so identify with it, in large part because like the family in The Blind Side, I, too come from a non-traditional family, where my father (the guy I call my Dad) and I do not share a gene pool, but we are a family and we love each other despite that.
It also made me think of my paternal Grandmother, who loved my mother like a daughter, and who died 16 years ago today. We love you, and we will never forget you.
