Little Girl asked me recently, "Does everyone have a birth mother?"
I winced a little on the inside over the pain of telling her that yes, everyone has a birth mother, it is just that many people get to grow up with that birth mother as their mother. Instead I told her God loved her so much that he gave her two mothers, a birth mother and a forever mother, some people just have one mother.
Then today a dear lady, a bit of a second mother to me, sent me this poem she saw in the newspaper "Adoptive Children Are Product of Two Different Kinds of Love". The poem is beautiful and so well captures the two mothers of our children who came to us via adoption. You may need tissues!
