adoptive mothers

May 10, 2012

As I was looking through our books for images of mothers, I could not help but search for this one of baby Moses and the Egyptian Princess who rescued him from the floating basket.

I found this children's Bible at a kids sale a few years ago and have been saving it for when Juliet is old enough to read a copy of the actual Bible (as opposed to a kid's Bible.)

This image struck me as I was flipping through it--checking to see if the pages were in good shape, not torn, written on, etc.

What a powerful image--it made me think of all the adoptive mothers and children that I know.

It reminded me that love is what makes someone a mother--whether it's for a birth child or an adoptive one.

I love reading books about adoption with my kids--here is a list of some of our favorites. My sister-in-law is in the process of adopting a child, so I would love to add more books to the list. Do you have any favorites to suggest?

I'm not actually sure you'll see this comment, Robyn told me once that comments sent from phones don't show or something? Anyway, I love Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born by Jamie Lee Curtis (one actress who can and should actually write childrens book-- sorry for that little rant).

I LOVE hearing from you.
