Happy Mother's Day

May 13, 2006

To all of the mothers out there, those waiting and wanting to become moms, to the grandmothers, the great grandmothers, to the women who "mother" in special ways, to all of the birthmothers who gave their children life and love through adoption....I want to thank you. Thank you for the many ways you have brought joy, comfort, healing, and compassion into our crazy world.

Mothering is the most rewarding, humbling, exhausting, and exhilerating experience I have ever had. Nothing prepared me for the overwhelming rush of emotions I felt when I held my children for the first time. Nothing prepared me for the overwhelming sense of resposbility and worrry. Yet I can't imagine it any other way. On Mother's Day I celebrate my two beautiful children...I wouldn't be a mama without them. I also think about Camille's birthmother and thank her.

We will be celebrating Mother's Day by preparing to return to Taiwan to finalize Camille's adoption. We leave on Monday and will be gone for about two weeks.

I just read your last 5 blogs (i'm late...a regular blog-tard) and i love hearing about all these amazing moments. Even though I'm right here with you in Oki, it's great to see the picture of little Noah, before I knew him at a crayfish smorgasboard! So darling! we're good here...hope you're having the BEST of times in Taiwan!
