Happy Mother's Day!




LEGACY OF AN ADOPTED CHILD

Once there were two women who never knew each other.
One you do not remember, the other you call Mother.
Two different lives shaped to make you one.
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun.

The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it.
The first gave you a need for love.
The second was there to give it.

One gave you a nationality.
The other gave you a name.
One gave you a talent.
The other gave you aim.

One gave you emotions.
The other calmed your fears.
One saw your first sweet smile.
The other dried your tears.

One sought for you a home that she could not provide.
The other prayed for a child and her hope was not denied.

And now you ask me, through your tears, the age-old question unanswered through the years.
Heredity or environment, which are you a product of?

Neither, my darling. Neither.
Just two different kinds of Love.

What a beautiful poem.
I am so happy that you are able to celebrate Mother's Day this year, and this morning at church when our pastor asked all the Grandmothers to stand up, I was able to stand up for the first time to be recognizied as a Grandmother!!!. It was a wonderful feeling. Melissa and Michael I know that I have said it before, but I just can't help saying it again, Ainsley is a beautiful baby, and a perfectly heavenly match for both of you. I can see it in all of your eyes, the awesome joy and love that you all have for each other. It brings tears to my eyes and I want to thank the dear Lord above for His blessings that He has bestowed upon us in His gift of Ainsley, she is a precious child, one that I will always cherish, and look forward to spoiling for many years to come. Happy Mothers's Day!

With much Love, Hugs, and Kisses

Happy 1st Mother's Day, Melissa!

For many of us I am sure we take the day for granted, but I'm sure this is truly a day that you will celebrate with all sencerity for the rest of your lives.

God's blessings on your life and that of the family you have created with love.
