Reuniting Cousins

Today was the day!
I received a parcel in the mail.

I've been on a journey looking for my lost cousins.
I checked out the internet sites and guess what I discovered?

It was way back in October that I spotted my favorite
cousins coming up North.

I looked at them thinking.
Could I ever adopt them and give them a new home?

Sure enough they found their way across the border.
Yesterday, I drove all the way to SHIP HAPPENS!
As I walked in, I heard whimpering and sniffling noises
coming from the packaged boxes.
I asked what was all the fuss about?
They had just received a package looking for it's new parents.

I responded quickly and said, "That's Me!"

They handed me the box,
and I could feel that them settling down.
They were so excited that I had arrived.
Inside the building people were smiling and cheering
as they saw me reuniting with the cousins,
assuring them that everything would be all right.

When I got home, they were not comfortable.
They looked rather fridgid.
I asked them what was wrong.
They whispered to each other.
"They thought they were arriving to meet
their other cousins William & Anna."

Oh My, I had already disappointed them.
I showed them their adoption papers.
Then they agreed, that they would just settle down.

It didn't take long and they asked,
"How long will it take to get to our cousins?"
Well, I told them, "They would have to wait till the new Year."

They started sulking and crying....
What was I to do...?
So I showed them pictures of their cousins and talked
about how well they had adjusted in to their new home.
They agreed, that the process of adjustment was difficult.

This morning when I woke up, I tip-toed past their room.
They actually looked like they were snuggling and giggling,
getting used to their new surroundings.

When I told them about the plans for the day,
they started building up a storm.
They were in total agreement that they would
help me get ready for the big party!

If you would like to consider adopting some more cousins,
please, by all means check out Willows Cottage.

Please welcome Charles & Charlotte to my family!
