Mother's Day

Two Mothers

Once there were two women

who never knew each other

One you won't 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

the second one 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 made an adoption plan

that was all that she could do

The other prayed for a child

and was lead straight here to you


Now which of these two women

are you the product of?

Both, my darling, both.

Just two different kinds of love

And one day you will help Molly know how greatful you are to the woman who gave her life so that she could live that life with you. The most precious of gifts. I know.

Amy, what a wonderful gift you have this mother's day. I hope you don't mind that I used the poem on my blog. We hope and pray that you are doing well with Molly and enjoying the last leg of your trip in Molly's home country. Take care, God Bless you both!

Oh, Amy...Molly is BEAUTIFUL!!!
This is Suzanne Rowe from Smyrna, TN. My Catherine was born in Jiangxi in Fuzhou. Mary was our guide too...loved her!
You are doing great!!! It sounds like you are doing exactly what Molly needs for you to do. No surprise...God has been preparing you to be her momma and that's who you are. :) I know you're exhausted and emotional and every other thing too. Be sure to cut yourself LOTS of slack...you just gave birth and in foreign country. :) Have fun shopping in Guangzhou...I loved that! You'll also find lots of yummy food too.
More than anything just rest in the Lord and let Him carry you as He leads you and guides you into this unbelievably beautiful and sometimes scary and always amazing journey called motherhood.

Congratulations and Many Blessings,
Suzanne
and Catherine Elizabeth
