I always spend part of my Mother’s Day thinking about some mothers that I share special treasures with. If I could, I would tell them thank you for giving the world and us these beautiful gifts.
I wonder if the first mother of this girl is as witty, funny and strong as she is? Does she also have the little wrinkle under her right eye when she smiles very big? If I had the chance, I would tell her what a precious girl she is. Your little girl is loved more than ever. Happy Mother’s Day in Vietnam!
And, does the first mother of this little girl share the same laid back/easy going temperament and love to be held and hugged as much as she does? Does she have this same fair skin and slanted dark eyes? I would love to tell her how far she has come in the past year and how much progress she has made. Happy Mother’s Day in China! Your gift to the world is our baby!
And, Happy Mother’s Day in China to the first Mother of this little guy. Your precious son isn’t in my arms yet, but I already love him so much and am praying that God allows us him to join our family soon. The baby you gave birth to will very soon become a cherished son, little brother, big brother and friend to many people who will love him.
I was blessed with 3 beautiful biological children several years and then was blessed again by mothers who chose life for their children.
Proverbs 23:25 – May your father and mother be glad; may she who gave you birth rejoice!
My friend L and Baby C came our way to pick strawberries this week so we decided to join them. Two adults and three babies/toddlers, two strollers, two cameras and lots of strawberries made for a fun and busy adventure! I don’t think we could ever get tired of eating strawberries. Yum, yum.
We had a chance to spend Sunday afternoon with some great adoptive families. The day was beautiful and so were the people. We ate a picnic lunch, let the kids play and had a chance to visit with others
who are crazy like us who we can identify with. I can’t wait to do it again soon. Unfortunately, I was having so much fun that I only took a couple of pictures of the girls playing in the sand. Oops!
This weekend we had the privilege to spend a couple of days with mom and help her celebrate her 70th birthday. I can’t believe she is 70 because she certainly doesn’t look or act that old to me. My two brothers were also able to be there. We had a great time together, but it would have been even better if my two sisters had been there as well. All of my siblings live spread out across the US so it’s hard to get together. But, this December we will all be celebrating mom and dad’s 50th anniversary at the beach and I can’t wait!
