A child born to another woman calls me mom....

My emotions and feelings of late are much like most expectant mothers a bit all over the place and filled with deep thought and emotion.  One thing I've thought a lot about.....

 "A child born to another woman calls me mom. The depth of the tragedy and the magnitude of the privilege are not lost on me." - Jody Landers


  1. This has tears running down my face instantly...
    What an honour to be called Mum by a child, what an honour to know that our amazing God is trusting you with a precious life.
    Unfortunately there are many reasons why a woman has to give up her child and I believe in the depths of my soul that it is NEVER an easy decision.
    Now you my dear friend are the one God has chosen to be blessed to be Mum to darling Lucy. To wrap her in your arms and to feel her heart beat against your chest, To answer her cry and to show her what it is to be loved and how to love. To give her the love that her birth Mother was not able to give her.
    Praying for you as you work through all of these emotions, knowing that God is right beside you encouraging you on to see through the plan for your lives that He has known from before time. WOW!
    Much Love xxoo

      "God is right beside us encouraging us on to see through the plan for our lives that HE HAS KNOWN from before time."
      THANK YOU for the encouragement and love!!

  2. So excited for you! I'm sure your thoughts are all over the place - anyone in this place would be! God will calm any fears as He goes ahead of you and leads your steps. Praying for you! Blessings to you!
