This is an easy one for me. It doesn’t have to do with Christmas, but it does have to do with birth, actually two of them. My son and daughter are adopted.
Everyone’s circumstances are different when it comes to becoming a mother. Two women I will never meet – one in America and one in Korea – must have thought long and hard before they gave me what just has to have been the best part of themselves. They added love, exasperation, pride, challenges, learning, fun, sacrifice, and incomparable richness to my life.
I thank those two women and wish them all happiness, of this and every season, with a full and grateful heart.
