The Saturday before Mother's Day traditionally is Birthmother's Day. A day to recognize that special woman, who looked beyond her own pain, and made a choice to make an adoption plan. Often, it's because of this choice that many of us were able to celebrate our first Mother's Day, I know that was the case for me.
Today I think of Isaac's birthmother, I wonder how she's doing, if anyone is recognizing her today. Hugging her, telling her they love, her, honoring the love that she had for a little boy she never held. I hope so. I know that our family is thinking of her, praying for her, loving her from afar.
