We attended my parents' church with them this morning, and in the bulletin was a long dedication to mothers, which included "To mothers who give birth to babies they will never see, and the mothers who raise them." I cried through about half the service.

I stopped when we began singing "It is well (it is well) with my soul (with my soul)" and my daughter exclaimed "No your soul, MY soul. [I]'s soul!"

Happy Mothers' Day. I'm thinking of all of you.

That sounds like the type of church where Jesus actually attends. Unlike the vast majority of "christian" churches in America

Dear Abebech,

Surfing on the internet I found your blog. I know how special it is to have a child from Ethiopia. For this mothersday, may 13th 2007, we arrived home at last with our beautiful son Thomas. He is 5 years old and very beautiful and sweet and special. But aren't all mother's children?

Love, Jolande (Holland)

Jolande, if you blog, I'd love to read it.
Congratulations on the arrival of your son. I have no doubt that he is all of those things!
