"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but it will never break." -Chinese Proverb


Just two different types of love

Feeling very grateful and emotional today....knowing how much I love that little boy, what a pleasure it has been to be his mother.....I found this poem on one of the site I frequent....and not normally an emotional person, I can say this poem made me cry...lots....I think because his birthday is coming up, having met him 3 years ago today and because of how often I think of his mom and hope she is ok and that her heart doesn't hurt for him, missing him and wondering about him every day because I know that if my child was adopted, I would wonder about him all the time.  And though her circumstances where different then those who were able to decide to terminate their parental rights, he is still her son too...always will be, he is her blood....he is my life....

Once there were two women who never knew each other
One you do not 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, and the second 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 you tears
One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do
The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.
Now, which of these two women, Are you the product of?
Both, my darling, Both, Just two different types of love.

I hope and pray that she has found peace and one day, I hope I can help her ease her mind.....and thank her for giving birth to one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life.....
