Birth Mother and Mother

We love Nathan's birth mom, I can't say that enough.
We feel so incredibly blessed to have her in our lives.
Not just because she's the angel that blessed us with the gift of parenthood,
but for who she is!

I've been reflecting today on our first Birth Mother's Day and Mother's Day since Nathan came into our lives.
I've decided I'm in the camp that wants to celebrate & honor her on both days.
Birth Mother's Day, to honor her brave choice to plan Nathan in our arms.
And Mother's Day because she was Nathan's Mother first.
And she did a dang good job of taking care of him.
Just like I try to do every day!

So Emily - we're happy to celebrate you as both!

Happy Birth Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day!

Love you!

Always stylin' & smilin'. Even after a rushed 12 minute-no drug labor!
Saying Goodbye - a super hard day

But I freakin' loved his onsie & couldn't wait for her to see it
Pre-birth: Love this girl!
Happy to share Nathan's sealing day with her! It made it even more special!

Adoption Rocks.

The card reads: "If I know what love is, it is because of you."
