Beautifully said. I often think about my boys birth family-mom and dad. Thanks for putting words to what I was feeling/thinking too. Adoption is amazing-and it is changing me, every day.

There's a birth mother and a birth grandmother who will think of our little guy tomorrow. We love and thank them both for walking the hard road for Hudson. And for us.

Girly, thanks for this! Thanks for touching so many people through your blog and reminding them of the deep love that a birth mom has for her child.

Thank you for teaching so many people about the absolute joys of adoption and how it changes your life forever. I love you sweet girl. Happy Birth Mom's day J and Happy Mother's Day Heather!

Gosh, you make me want to adopt more and more everytime I read your blogs about it or just after seeing/thinking about your sweet little Hudson. I just love him and I've only been blessed to spend a few days with him. I pray God opens this door for us to be a blessing like you guys have been to Hudson one day.

Adoption is incredible!

Although I'm glad the Lord moved us to adopt, the REAL blessing is Hudson. We're an imperfect family...we have our issues...we have our flaws. Hudson has by far been a bigger blessing to us than we have been to him.

What an honor to raise this baby!

I'm thankful God moved our hearts towards adoption, but I'm also very aware that Hudson is the real blessing...and "J" is the real hero.
