I think I was born wanting to be a mother and now I get to live in the reality of motherhood each and every minute of the day. Sunday will be my 8th Mother's Day, yet I can still remember what it was like to ache for a baby that would call me Mommy. Two selfless young couples healed the hurt when they trusted me to be the Mommy to their babies and I am blessed and grateful to have the best job in the world! To all birthmothers...thank you for choosing adoption and Happy Mother's Day!
I had a link to a video of "Everything to Me" by Mark Schultz on yesterday's post. It wasn't the best quality, so here's a better one.
For birthfamily gifts this year, we kept it simple. Artwork and pictures always seem like a good idea.
Here are Little Miss' finished butterflies. She drew the butterfly, but I must admit, I did end up painting a couple of them...she got bored. (Excuse the poor photos in this post...very bad light and wrong settings will make for wonky photos.)
Here are E's mini canvases.
They also decorated magnetic frames...they're in my last post here.
