A Birth Mother & Mother's Day Message

Although not officially on the calendar as a holiday, did you know that the Saturday before Mother's day is celebrated in the adoption community as "Birth-Mother's Day?" If I could share message with Josie's birth mother, this is what I would say.

Your daughter is beautiful.

Please know that her medical conditions have been taken care of and she is now healthy and full of endless energy.

She’s smart, funny and brings incredible joy to our family.

She has many friends, and will be going to Kindergarten next fall!

She loves to eat...especially CHOCOLATE.

Playing outside makes her extremely happy.

She has a big sister that is a wonderful role model.

Her big sister loves her very much and Josie loves her back unconditionally.

When I see our two daughters together, we know our family is now complete.

Thank you for choosing life for this precious little girl.
You have shared with our family a priceless gift.
We are forever grateful.

Happy Mother's day to all the special ladies in my life.
I hope you have a marvelous weekend!
I love you Emma and Josie.

I love you MOM!

What a beautiful and moving post. Part of the reason I read blogs is to read something positive and meaningful (as opposed to what is often reported in mainstream media). Your family's story is one so full of joy and hope. Happy Mother's Day to you.
