A Mommy day, filled with joy, tears, happiness and hugs.
Yet an emptiness lingers, a longing for all of our children.
My Ethiopian hugs and kisses
Never to develop in my womb, but precious ones you are growing in my heart.
My arms ache to hold you. Wrapped in God's love, I wait to wrap you in mine.
Your fragile life marred by pain that I cannot erase. I will introduce you to the One who can.
Your first steps, I might miss. I will walk with you for eternity.
A child's smiles and giggles I wait for. My joy will be complete when you're home.
Today I do not know your names or your faces. Dreaming of the day when I do.
I struggle in the wait. You my children are worth waiting for.
I love you. Longing to shower you with His.
