some people are amazing...

I got this email a few months back:

"Hi my name is Rebecca and I ordered a double Taylor necklace a month ago, or so, and LOVE it.  I got the initials of my 2 boys Jackson and Maratu.  We are traveling to Ethiopia to visit Maratu for the first time and just found out we are going to be able to meet his birth mom while we are there.  I would love to be able to give her a matching necklace with his initial on it.  Something we can share as we will both share different and equally important roles as mothers in his life."
Wow, right?

And then earlier this week I got this email:

Hi Amber, just thought I would follow up on this necklace you sent for our sons birth mom a little while back.  When we were in Ethiopia in September to bring our sweet son home we were able to meet his birth mom for the first time.  It was an amazing experience to say the least!  She was a quiet, shy woman and seldom smiled during our meeting.  She did however smile when she got her necklace and told us it is her prized possession. Thanks for helping to facilitate such an important moment!  Attached is a picture of the two of us wearing our necklaces and our beautiful son Maratu.

I cannot imagine the courage it takes to put your child up for adoption, even in a circumstance when you know that it is the most loving thing you can do.  And I cannot imagine the courage and the size of heart it must take to spend your time and your resources to rescue a child who desperately needs a chance at a better life.  A child you've never even met, but feel convicted to Mother and to save.  Both of these women are so strong and so brave and I feel really fortunate to be a part of their story in a small way.

  3. Wow! How I missed this story I don't know! So touching!
