The first Sophie Sunday was May 20, 2007. It’s not easy adopting a rescue animal. There are a lot of learned behaviors that have to be unlearned. We were in it for the long haul—even if she never came around, we were her family and we were going to give her love.
That first Sophie Sunday was about six weeks after Sophie came to live with us, and I wanted to do something that would make me focus on the good things about her instead of everything that was so difficult about the transition.
I find that I don’t have to try so hard to see the good things anymore.
