Labor of Love

As we creep closer and closer to finding out who our baby is and prepare to actually go get him and bring him home, there is sooo many things to think about and to do and to pray about and at times I can get really overwhelmed with it all...but tonight all I can think about is "baby E's" (as Aunt La-La has nicknamed him) birth mother.
If we are only a few months away from finding out who he is, then she may be only months or even weeks away from delivery...or maybe has even already delivered him. What is she thinking? Does she touch her belly in hope? Is she sick and facing death? Is this child the only thing keeping her going right now? Is she young and scared? It hurts to imagine her, but I must. I pray she is comforted. Regardless of the details of her situation, she has to be sad.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
Matthew 5:4
This verse brings hope
I am praying for baby E's birth mother to be comforted. Please pray with me


  1. Amen to that!!! We pray for our birth mothers regularly.....

  2. in response to your comment...the andersons were accidently put on the boys list (they werent on the boys list with agci). they just received their referral for twin girls. i am wondering, though, if the family right before us were waiting for a toddler boy. There were two toddler boy referrals in the ethiopia update that we got. so that may make us #2. who knows? its really hard keeping up!
