I feel like I'm losing a daughter, and she hasn't even left yet. And the worst part is that she's not even my daughter.
Marybeth moved in with our family in June. And she's leaving tomorrow. We're going to miss her so much.
While she has sometimes called me "Mom" and we've all treated her like one of the family, she actually belongs to some friends in Illinois. A student at Southern Illinois University, Marybeth was only "on loan" for the summer.
And summer is over.
