Happy Mother's Day. Whether you are celebrating your own mom, or are a mother yourself, or are wondering just what path you should take with your little one now; we wish you peace. And... a beautiful day. So who is a mother? She is one who loves her children more than herself.
She put their needs first. She sings the same song 20 times in one day and reads that same favorite story every night for a month. "Mama read it again PLEASE :)"
She stays up all night with a sick child and in the morning she still loves them just as much even tho there might be barf in her hair and she is tired beyond words.
She is the one a little child comes to when something is wrong and she just need a kiss. She is the one who finds a small hand reaching up for hers while walking through the woods, or the park, or the store.
She answers many questions a day...Mama, why is the sky blue? Why do kitties fight? Why do people drive outside when it's time to be in bed? Why?
For our birthmothers it was letting go...Letting go of dreams and finding a different plan. It was heartbreaking and yet a sense of an all knowing God who cares about everything never left. Cherith's birthmom told us...If I loved her any less I would keep her. Even if you make an adoption plan you will always be a mother. Hugs to you :)
