birthmothers day video

Tomorrow is Birthmother's Day.  I simply don't have words to adequately express how my heart feels towards the women that carried and deeply loved my sons.  We have had the pleasure of getting to know Abe's birthmom and will never have the opportunity to know Eyasu's.  Either way, they will forever have a place in our family.

I have shared this before.  It is pretty raw and difficult, yet I just don't know of a better way to show you how in His marvelous creation, He could weave the lives of two moms together so perfectly.

Oh my heavens, I almost crashed my husbands Mac with the amount of tears I'm dropping while watching this video!! That was.. so like God!! Your adoption story and this video encourages me to trust in Jehovah Jireh. He continues to provide all that we need pertaining to life and godliness... we see that in your precious boy having two amazing moms!

Thank you for sharing this!!
