A Mother's love

It has been a rough few days. I don't know why I didn't see it coming. Mother's day was very surreal this year. Obviously, I really miss my Mother. What I did not expect was the overwhelming emotion of reflecting on Sarah May's biological mother and her foster mother. All of these mixed thoughts rolling around in my head and trying to keep it together. Three "mothers" who all should be celebrated for their love and selflessness in the lives of their children.

It is so important for me to navigate a way for Sarah to have loving feelings towards all of these women. As far as my Mother is concerned it is a no brainer. Sarah will know her Grandma Jennie through, stories and pictures. She will feel the love and know that Grandma Jennie will be waiting to meet her in heaven. My Mother shared with me in September that she was sad that she would never meet her granddaughter. I know exactly when and where she said this because it was weird to me. I replied, "Mother why would you say that, you don't know that." I now know she did know it, she was preparing me.

As far as Sarah's foster mother, that shouldn't be difficult either. We will have photos of her and she has loved Sarah and cared for over the past year and a half. We will keep her memory alive the best we can.

My real concern is about Sarah's biological mother. I want Sarah to know that she is loved by her too. She has given our family the most amazing gift a person can give. I believe that she desires what is best for Sarah. I am prayerful that in heaven she will be able to reunite with Sarah and tell her all these things herself. In the meanwhile I believe it is very important for Sarah to know that her biological mother is wonderful loving selfless woman. What she did was for Sarah and it was a sacrifice of love.

If you are a praying person please pray for Sarah to feel the love of all of her mothers and grandmothers.

1 Corinthians 13:13 There are three things that will endure--faith, hope and love-and the greatest of these is love.
