Another relationship is just plain hampered by circumstance. Lack of internet. Lack of phone. Living a little bit too far to be more help. Every time we had something set up to get together, it seemed to fall through. That intense feeling of being crushed over and over and over again....and quite honestly, I am on the easier end of it. I see my babies everyday. I can only imagine the intense emotions that our children's birthmothers experience on a day to day basis.
Then, out of the blue...I got an email from one birthmother and on the same day, a phone call from another one. The good Lord knew that I needed to hear from them. We were able to sneak in a visit in our crazy schedule with one and we are still working on the other one. It seems everyone has a bit much going on lately. I do not take my time with any of my babies' first mommas for granted. Not one bit. Reality warns me that it could be the last time--or a long time before we see them or hear from them again. I hope they all know that I am here for them. I do have their back. I will support them as best I can. I will stand up for them. I will figure out how to help them make their dreams come true. I will have rules...just like any other person that truly loves them. Oh how I love them. I hope they always know that. Even when it may seem like I don't. Here are some photos of our last visit. Enjoy!
Sleepy time on the couch! :0)
Lovin' up our kiddos!
One of my favorites! Momma and daughter.
Jenay and her birthmother! Don't they look EXACTLY alike?
