MY STORY:
I WAS FOUND ON THE STREETS I WAS ABOUT 6 MONTHS MAYBE 9 MONTHS OLD PREGNANT STARVED WHERE YOU COULD SEE MY BONES BULGING OUT FROM MY SKIN.I WAS SO FRIGHTENED . MOM HAS A VERY PERSONAL STORY OF HOW WE SAVED EACH OTHERS LIVES .BUT THIS IS TO PERSONAL TO SHARE HERE. ASK I'M SURE SHE LOVE TO SHARE IT.
POINT BEING I WAS TAKEN IN TO MY FOREVER HOME 1985 OR SO
AND I WAS A PART OF THAT LOVING HOME TILL
APRIL 2003 WHEN I WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE..
I WAS NEVER HUNGRY OR UNLOVED .MOMMY USED TO STROKE MY HEAD FOR HRS AT A TIME .I SLEPT CUDDLED IN MOM TUMMY ,SHE CARRIED ME EVERYWHERE.MY FEET HARDLY TOUCHED THE GROUND.BUT WHEN THEY DID I WAS OFF AND RUNNING YELPING HAPPILY TO THE WORLD .
LOOK AT ME I AM LOVED .. EVERYONE I AM LOVED.
ADOPTION MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME. IT MEANS A STREET RAT LIKE ME CAN FIND A WARM BED A FULL BOWL OF FOOD /WATER A GOOD DR TO FIX MY BROKEN LEG .
FREEDOM FROM GIVING BIRTH ON THE STREETS TO MORE PUPPIES THAT WILL ONLY PARISH FROM HUNGRY DISEASE OR INJURY.

A FAMILY WHO LOVED ME ENOUGH TO HAVE ME SPAYED MY SHOTS. FIXED MY TEETH.
BUT ALL THAT FALLS SECONDARY TO THE LOVE I FOUND WITH MY ADOPTED FAMILY OVER THE NEXT 19 YRS. THE LAST 5 YRS OF MY LIFE I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE
AS TIME WENT ON MY HEART GREW SO WEAK.
I WAS PUT ON 3 DIFFERENT MEDICATION
THESE MEDICATIONS WERE THE ONLY WAY I COULD LIVE AND THEY WERE VERY EXPENSIVE.
I HAD TO HAVE THEM 2 X DAY.
BUT DID THAT STOP MY FAMILY? NEVER!
SADLY I NEW THAT THERE WERE TIMES MOM DAD GAVE UP THEIR OWN MEDICATIONS THEY NEEDED OR FOOD TO MAKE SURE I HAD LIFE SAVING MEDICATIONS I NEEDED.

THEY NEVER WENT FAR FROM HOME BECAUSE EVERYTHING IN THEIR LIFE WAS SCHEDULED AROUND MY NEEDS.
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THERE ARE FEW OUT THERE WHO LOVE SO SELFLESSLY AS MOMMY & DADDY DID.
THOSE WHO DO ARE ANGELS ON EARTH.
TO A LIL STREET RAT LIKE ME.
WELL I LIVED A LONG LOVING LIFE. AND WHEN THAT FAITHFUL DAY ROLLED IN UPON US I GOT TO SEE THE REAL LOVE.
THE TRUEST TEST OF ALL.
AFTER BREAKING MY BACK IN A LIL FALL OR TWIST DR SAID AT MY AGE IT COULD HAD BEEN A COUGH. BUT AFTER 7 DAYS OF ROUND THE CLOCK MORPHINE AND MOM DAD SLEEPING WITH ME ON THE FLOOR..
THE FINAL GIFT THEY GAVE ME WAS THE ULTIMATE GIFT FROM A BELOVED FAMILY. AN HONOR SOME SAY... BESTOWED UPON A DOG/CAT OWNER .
THEY STAYED WITH ME AND HELD ME IN THEIR LOVING ARMS WITH TEARS STREAMING DOWN THEIR FACES AS I TOOK MY FINAL BREATH AND WITH MY LAST EXHALE I SET THEM FREE FROM MY VIEW..
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.

THAT RAINY APRIL DAY
APRIL 17 2003
MY JOURNEY ENDED .
NOT ON THE STREETS STARVING TO DEATH.
BUT IN MOMMY & DADDY'S LOVING ARMS.

ADOPT A STREET RAT WE HAVE SO MUCH TO GIVE...
OUR HEART IS FREELY GIVEN FOR A LIFETIME
JUST ADOPT US AND GIVE US THAT CHANCE.
MY FAMILY DID.
AND I GAVE THEM MY HEART FOR INFINITY



OUR TIME IS SLIPPING AWAY

HOW DO I HOLD ON TO YOU
AND STILL LOVE YOU ENOUGH TO LET YOU GO?
HOW WILL I PUT OUT THE LIGHT
WHEN INSIDE MY HEART THE FIRES GROW?
HOW DO I TURN BACK THE TIME
AND TURN DEATH FROM THE DOOR?
HOW WILL I FILL MY EMPTY ARMS
WHEN I CAN'T HOLD YOU ANYMORE?

HOW WILL I JUST STEP BACK AND LET THINGS BE AS THEY MUST.
HOW CAN I SAY GOOD -BYE
WHEN I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH.
HOW WILL I STAY WARM AT NIGHT,
WHEN YOUR NOT CUDDLED BY MY SIDE?
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THIS ?
LORD KNOWS HOW HARD I'VE TRIED.

HOW WILL I GIVE YOU BACK TO GOD
WHEN I FEEL THAT YOU ARE MINE.
HOW WILL I EVER ACCEPT THE FACT
WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
