SPECIAL GUEST: AMELIA, the little girl who stole Shannon's heart and challenged Geoff's doubts that he could be a loving father again
Interviewed by Genene Valleau, author of SONGS OF THE HEART
AUTHOR: Right now Amelia is decorating cookies she and Shannon have baked. Amelia, what is your favorite kind of cookie?
AMELIA: Ones with sprinkles.
AUTHOR: Why is that?
AMELIA: Because they make you sweeter. *giggles*
AUTHOR: Do you and Shannon make cookies every day?
AMELIA: Almost every day, and sometimes Geoff helps put the sprinkles on.
AUTHOR: Do you dance every day too?
AMELIA: Kinda. My teacher says I have to work hard at dancing, but some days I’d rather dance just for fun with Geoff.
AUTHOR: Do you like Geoff?
AMELIA: *nods* He saved me from the river.
AUTHOR: That must have been scary.
AMELIA: And cold.
AUTHOR: You like Zach a lot too, don’t you?
AMELIA: *grins* Yeah. Other people say he’s kinda grouchy, but he tells me funny stories.
AUTHOR: You have a lot of people who love you.
AMELIA: Shannon says that’s the way adoption is supposed to be. She said the angels knew she had wished for a little girl with all her heart and I was her dream come true.
AUTHOR: I think she’s right.
AMELIA grins broadly: Can we give away some cookies now?
AUTHOR: Good idea! Why don’t you draw the winner?
