Two Moms....

We just finished watching "Like Dandelion Dust" and oh my the tears......lots and lots and lots of tears. I read the book years ago and although the movie was good the book delves even deeper into the emotions and thoughts going through both families minds. For those that don't know, it's a story about a family adopting a son and 7 years later the birthparents decide they want him back. I won't spoil it with any more details but truly it is so good to see both sides of the adoption....the adoptive parents and the birthparents. Really makes you think!

One sentence just really stuck with me, so I thought I'd share it here.

"I want him to know he has two mothers.
One that loved him so much she wouldn't let him go
and another that loved him so much she had to let him go."
With a heart overflowing with gratitude for the selfless gift of five mothers...
 My lap, my arms and my heart overflows because of an amazing gift from 5 strangers that now have become my family.

Two moms....

Love the fall "decor" on your blog! So cute! And what a wonderful photo of you and your precious kiddos with the beautiful fall leaves in the background.

I'm also so grateful for Daniel's birthmom. His situation is different because she was abusive and neglectful so they took him away from her, yet she carried him to term when she could have aborted and parented him the best she could for 5 years. I wish there was some way to find her and let her know he is loved and cared for.

I hope all is well with you and your precious family!

Much Love,
Kathie

I've never read the book. I'm sure you especially connected to it through your experiences and blessings through adoption.

You have the most precious family...true blessings from God! :-)
