There are not words adequate to describe how humbled I feel that I get to be the mom of this hero hearted boy who’s too quickly growing into a man.
It seems like just yesterday “we” looked like this:
|ultrasound of Liam|
Who gets them to smile again when they are blue?
Liam has a way with his girls…
Our world NEEDS men who know how to love.
You love your sisters.
I’m so PROUD of my young and impassioned, protective, brilliant, artistic son.
When we were in the midst of adopting our little girls, Liam’s heart broke as we were exposed to foster children who’s lives had been shattered.
He would often ask, Mom, why can’t we adopt more kids?
Liam and his two big sisters eagerly wanted us to adopt again.
Liam requested a brother!
Then he made a really specific request because of his love for his little sisters…
“God, can he be black like my little sister?”
As time went on his prayer changed to
“God, can we adopt two little brothers?”
We all deeply wanted to adopt again-
but it was Liam who prayed specifically for “two little brothers- who look like my little sisters.”
|Liam insisted on carrying Mohale to the visa Dr. appointment when we were in Johannesburg last month. Hours after this pic was taken, Liam began to get sick…
He looks so sick in this pic. It has taken weeks for him to physically strong again.
He adores them.
You are a gift from heaven beyond my wildest imaginations-
You amaze me with your creative heart of compassion, protection and incredible adventurous nature.
I’m honored to be your mom and more grateful and proud of you than words can describe.
