A mother's love

It was a great day today meeting with Bristol birth mom. I wanted to write about it tonight while it was still fresh in my mind. I would have to admit I was a bit nervous about having much contact after the hospital. But I decide today that you know what it is ok. It was so neat to see how happy her birth mom was to see what a cute little girl she was. She told me that I had sent her a picture of her in her blessing dress and she knew right there and then she had made the right choice to give her up. She wanted that for her and knew she could not give it to her. I know of the love she has for Bristol and for this new baby she is caring. She wants the best for them and it truly is one of the greatest love someone can have for someone.

I just love this picture from today, Bristol walked over to her and put her arms out to her and climbed up on her lap and just looked at her like I know you. And then leaned into her and gave her a huge hug. Almost telling her thank you. It was a super sweet moment that I will always cherish.
