Party of 7

On this Mother's Day it is bitter sweet. I have 2 daughters in other parts of the world today.

My sweet little Ariadna. Some of you know this our foster daughter that we were blessed with for a year and half. She will forever be a part of our hearts and family.

Then, there is our sweet little Haddie Hope Jie. How I long to kiss her precious face and tell her how blessed I am to be her mama. For now, I am her mama from afar.

I was given such a priceless gift last week. We were sent pictures of Haddie by a family who traveled to her orphanage to adopt their son in 2006. Haddie is 3 in these pictures and these may very well be the only "baby" pictures we will have of her. To have a glimpse into what she looked like at this precious young age means so much to me! Age 3 is one of my very favorite years. I am so thankful that the Lord blessed us with this gift. Feel free to tell me how adorable you think she is...I won't mind! :)

Celebrating you, my sweet little Haddie and the gift to be your mama and I hold on to the HOPE of you being home with us next Mother's Day!
