Or should I call you that?
One definition of mother is "Origin of" so it does seem okay, considering.
Once again I am coming upon the time of year which has been very hard for me for a few decades now. Another "Thanks Giving and Christmas" is fast approaching. They have been getting easier, but this one will be the hardest for another reason. I will fill you in on that a little later.
As I reflect back and consider things to give thanks for, I truly want to give you thanks for bringing me into the world. You could have chosen another route, but instead, you chose to go full term and allowed me to have that chance to see what God had instore for me. You obviously placed me in a safe place where it must have been warm considering the time of year. It must have been very hard and scary for you to have carried me for 9 months knowing you would one day arrive at this moment.
An Angel of the Lord must have guided a gentle pair of hands to take me to where they had a place for me.
I have read many articles where others have done the same thing, either given up their child or aborted their child and then have worries and wonders especially around their childs birthday. I guess our birthdays would be a little different from normal kids in a sense.
I have also read many testimonies of mothers who have given their children up for various reasons and have wondered if they were to meet up, would their child forgive them? That is the awesome thing about our God, He teaches us what real love is and how to forgive, for He has forgiven us of so much. Not assuming that it is forgiveness you want or are looking for, but if it is, then of course I forgive you. I sincerely pray that you know our Lord Jesus and have accepted His gift of eternal life. For if we are never to meet here on this world, in this time, then we eventually will in His kingdom.
God really does love the little children. He tells us in His Word about the orphans and widows. Back in those early days things were a lot different than they are now. If you were of mixed race, your chances of being adopted were slim. Most people wanted an all white, all black, all asian, all green, blue, red, etc etc child. Interracial marriages were extremely frowned upon. But it only makes a difference to man, God loves us all, and in His infinite wisdom, He sends a mixed race couple to adopt a mixed race kid out of the orphanage.
I'm sure you are familiar with the term "Black sheep" of the family?
Well this is how it started...
