raine is moving to harrisburg with her mother | full-time fatherhood, part-time sisterhood and the bond i have been building with my bonus baby will look like something foreign to what our blended family has come to know. the girls spent the day, hip to hip, engrossed in their games and each other and i spent it watching them. it is moment like these that i realize how bittersweet this blended life can be. raine is margel's, but she is also her mother's, so i can never hold her as tight as i wish to within this family that we've grown. for the rest of our lives, my home, our home, will be a place that she visits and never a place that she stays.
