This Mother's Day

In some ways, this Mother's Day is much like the ones in the past few years - breakfast in bed, church, and John handling the children for the afternoon so I can get some quiet time.  But I feel much different today than in Mother's Day's past.  Today I yearn for the child I met only a week and a half ago.  I've spent much of the day crying, wondering how she is.  We haven't heard back yet about setting up our next visit, so I have no clue what she is thinking.  Is she excited?  scared?  does she want this?  does she know how much we want her here with us?  does she even know that we said yes?

I bought this sign to hang in her room.  You are loved.
