A boy invited Mel to come to his soccer game tonight.
Update: I just realized that I never really made a big announcement-type post about this, but M.Bro and I are Mel's permanent guardians now. She's moved from Nebraska to live with us in Madison, and she's transferred from her tiny rural school to 2400-student-strong Memorial High School.
In a lot of ways, she's just like our daughter. Our daughter we conceived at 10 or 11 years old.
