Mother's Day. The day that I think most about our birthmom. Is she pregnant with a little one right now? Is she a teen? A mom already? Is she scared? Sad, but knows she has no other choice?
My heart goes out to her today, on Mother's Day. I can't begin to imagine what she must feel. To know that the little one she carries so tightly in her belly must belong to another. To know that the child she will so lovingly gaze at will be placed in another mom's arms. To be cherished and loved by two moms.
What a blessed mama she is to give the ultimate sacrifice and show the ultimate love for her child through adoption. I am blessed to know her. My husband is blessed to know her. My girls are blessed to know her. And our child will be blessed to have known her. Whether it only be in the womb, or a short glimpse into her tear-stained eyes at birth, our child will know her love.
Happy Mother's Day to our birthmom wherever you may be. We love you and are blessed to call you a part of our family. Thank you for choosing life.
