What do you want for Mother’s Day?” I usually hear this question at some point one or two weeks prior to the holiday. I love the flowers my husband gives me. I love being showered by kisses and breakfast in bed from my kids. I love being a mother. I love that my kids who were once orphaned and left without their mothers now have a mother to shower their love on. So, I hope my friends and family reading this will understand that my heart is broken for the motherless 163 million orphaned children lost without the hope of a mother to ever make toast for or bring a cup of tea to on Mother’s Day. My heart also grieves for the women around the world who long to be mothers but can’t due to infertility or lack of adoption funds. So, from the depths of my soul I am asking all of you to join me in connecting the dots in uniting a little girl who we (for now) call Taylor with the best gift in the world in the form of a mother. My friend Nicole is the woman who has conceived this 7 year old child in her heart and is only disconnected from her now due to lack of funds in adopting her. Nicole is an awesome woman and an incredible mother who recently adopted a teen from Ukraine named Kolya. Taylor is HIV+ and has less of a possibility of finding a mother due to her status. Nicole and her husband Joe have faith that God will somehow provide even though they have exhausted all of their savings on the adoption of Kolya and other orphan advocacy that they have poured their lives into.
