Mother's Day... a Thankful Memory

I heard something on Mother's Day that made me very thankful for my mom.

A lady at church who has adopted children wanted to remind us all to be thankful for moms ... and for the moms who raise other women's children.

At first I thought that was very nice, especially since I was adopted myself.

But then I realized how grateful I am that my own mom never made me feel that way. I never once felt like I was anything other than her own child, adopted or not. It was a sense of belonging that she gifted me with, as well as abundant love.

I just read your adoption story...and was very touched, but in a way not at all surprised! God definitely had his hand on you and your brother and your parents when he put all of you together. :)

Chris said...

Lauren, that was so nice of you to comment this way. This story is so special to me and it's wonderful to have someone read it who really understands why.
