I’m one of the luckiest girls in the world. I have the BEST mom. I could not survive without her. My mom can do anything and everything. For example, we’ve been at restaurants and loved a dish we ordered. My mom will say, “I can make this at home,” and she does! My mom can sew anything. She has made me some of the best items in my wardrobe. If I can do half the things she does someday, I’ll be doing well.
My mom has always been my biggest cheerleader. My dreams are her dreams. My passions are her passions. I’ll never forget my last night in Beijing. I had just spent seven days with the greatest kids in the world. I had no idea my time in the orphanage would affect me the way it did. I emailed my mom from Beijing and said, “Tonight is my last night in China but I’m not done with China. I hope you want a Chinese grandchild someday because someday I’ll be back to adopt my daughter.” Instantly, my mom loved and prayed for a child she had never met and probably won’t meet for years to come.
For Mother’s Day this year I made a donation to the Half the Sky "Nanny Program" in her honor. Thank you mom for praying for me and loving me like nobody else ever could.
