Thoughts of a special woman....

As I haved prepared for our big celebration tomarrow,...Tonight I have a very heavy heart for Gracies birth mother. In fact tears have been streaming down my face. I know that as I write this tonight it is the 4th in Korea, which is the day Grace was born. One year ago, she chose to give birth to a beautiful baby girl and selflessly decided with all the strength that she had within her to give this baby girl a chance for a better life. I am sure it took all the strength within her to come to this decision. I am positive today that her little baby girl is in her thoughts. As I prayed over Grace tonight, I also pray many things for her birth mother.

Tonight I am also very thankful...Thankful to God for blessing us with Grace. We are her forever family, and she is forever ours! She may not have grown under my heart, but she grew in my heart! Jesus bless our family, keep us safe and healthy, guide us in raising our children, help us to make the right decisions, we love you Lord and give you Thanks for all you do and for all that you are! amen.

Tina, my thoughts are with you and Grace's birthmother as well...I too had a really rough day on Friday, Zoey's birthday, with thoughts of their struggles and sacrifice. May they find peace.

So beautiful...I often think of Matthew's mother, so far away, and I wonder how she is doing. I pray for her often and it brings tears to my eyes just thinking of what an amazing choice she made for her son. I appreciated your thoughts tonight - I share them so much!

What a selfless gift Grace's mother gave you! I'm so thankful for that and that now Grace has a family that will be there for her forever and give her more than she could ever need. Happy birthday, Gracie! :)

Thanks for sharing. Gosh I felt exactly the same on Lily's birthday. We had only been home with her for 5 weeks. It's such a mixture of emotions. Hope it turned out to be a beautiful day!
