New Babies and praying for an unknown woman in Ethiopia.

Ok so while we are in the holding pattern there isn't really alot to blog about. Or is there?? Yesterday I had the great joy of having lunch with my friend Heather and her 1 month old daughter Victoria. This was my first time meeting the lil one and she is an absolute doll which leaves me sad that we don't live closer togeather so that I would have more opportunity to see this little muffin grow up. And speaking of living far away my Sister in law gave birth to her second child yesterday I have a new nephew who of course I have only seen now in pictures..Camden you are adorable and I can't wait to meet you in person. Your uncle Sean and I are blessed to have you as our nephew along with your big brother Christian. Yes there are more children I don't get to see as often as I like. I also have a niece and nephew that live in New York.

I have been thinking alot of random thoughts today and then I stopped to think about that unknown woman in Ethiopia. What woman is that you ask?? Its the mother of my son. There is a very good chance she is pregnant right now. My child as we speak is probable growing far away from me in a land vastly different from the one in which he will be raised. I pray for her that she has enough to eat, a save place to live ,and comfort when she needs it most in making the decision to make an adoption plan for our child. I hope and pray that someday I will get to meet her and express to her how thankful we are for the decision she has made and the little life that she is entrusting to our care. I will forever be grateful to this unknown woman in Ethiopia and hopefully someday she will be known to me.
