  1. This post has me in tears! Beautifully written from parts of your heart and soul that so many of us don't dare to venture. And you share it so eloquently and with such love and respect for those you adore. Thank you!! That crinkly nose makes me smile.

    • Lacy, you understand every emotion I ever have because you're living it. I can't wait to lay eyes on your sweet baby. I hope I get to see him/her IN UGANDA! 🙂

  2. Absolutely gorgeous Rach! You are able to put words to your love in ways that I can't even describe. I feel like I know sweet Amelia so well because of the way you describe her. I love you and your unselfish heart so much!

    • Thanks sweet Heather. I hope our girls get to vacation together someday and have as much fun as we did growing up. I love you!

  3. I'm here from the link-up at The Cloisters. This is beautiful. I always love the connection between our adoption as children of God and those who have gone through the adoption process here. Beautifully written.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this. As one whose heart aches for the little ones we are hoping to adopt some day–little ones who will most likely be a different color than me, my redheaded husband, and two blond-haired, blue-eyed babies–it is wonderful to see your heart poured out this way.

    I stopped by from the Cloisters link-up, but I plan on coming back.

  5. Oh my. You write beautifully. And such a topic. My heart breaks and rejoices with yours as I read your beautifully crafted honest words. Thank you for sharing. (I came via the linky…)

  6. It sounds like Amelia is one lucky little girl to have made her way to you. I'm visiting your blog for the first time through the Tues Archive Link. Very beautifully written.

  7. This was so beautiful and it brought tears to my eyes. She is blessed to have you. And any mother who had to give up a child for adoption, her heart should surely be filled after reading a post like this. Simply beautiful.

  9. Or just maybe Grace rejoices in having done right by a baby that she couldn't keep. Babies end up where they are meant to be, good or bad.. Everyone has a journey. At least that's what I believe.

  10. Such a beautiful post and so full of emotion. What a blessed family you all are. And what a lucky little girl who now calls you mommy.

  11. Dear one, your last line.
    Yes.

    They do cry.

    I know. I am a birthmother, too.

    Almost eighteen years of tears and questions and faded photo memories.

    Sometimes you love by taking in, and sometimes you find yourself in a place where to love means to let go.

    A beautiful, merciful post. Coming to Truth is always laced with such.
