I've been thinking about one of my close friends who lost her baby early in her pregnancy. My eyes fill with tears when I think about you. I can't comprehend the feelings after experiencing this, or know the comforting words to say. But I know that you are in God's hands and he is there for you-so am I.
Being a mother has been such an amazing blessing and calling. No matter if it's through adoption or foster care or any sort of mother figure. So happy for our good friends Mike and Erin whose adoption finalized yesterday. I am grateful for women everywhere who are so unselfish and so brave to place their babies with others.
It is amazing how my love has grown for my own mother as I am experiencing the stages of motherhood. When Avery was born, I remember feeling so grateful for all my mom had done for me in my life . It is so much work. Can you imagine how I am going to feel when Avery is a teenager? I'll be worshipping the ground my mom walks on after thinking about what she had to deal with when I was that age.
