Daniel is upstairs with the kids, and I am supposed to be organizing our basement, but I had to take a little break. It is overwhelming but I see huge progress. :)
I wanted to share some thoughts I have been having about adoption. I have been thinking alot about Leah's birthmother. Having a feeling she is born, and I think she has been born recently, has made me thing about the kind of situation that has put her birthmom in. Did she get to cuddle Leah? Was it an excruciating decision to make? (I am 100% sure it was) How is she coping? How do you say goodbye to a child?
On the other hand, I am so happy I think she is alive and out there. (Leah) I pray for her daily and hope her foster parents (or perhaps she is in the baby room still at SWS) are loving her to pieces. I miss her. And I am grateful to everyone that is taking care of her. And praying for her birthmother.
Adoption brings on an amazing amount of emotions. Having had two pregnancies, I can see the similarities. But I also can see how with the amazing blessing Leah will bring us, there is also a huge loss for her and her birthmother. Her country, her culture, and having that link to another human being of the same blood. Being adopted myself, I have felt that missing piece, yet I have also felt the enormous love of a family. I pray Leah will understand all the love that went into her. I love you Leah. And I miss you terribly.
