Tuesday's Unwrapped


one of the first glimpes
of our boy!

Happy Tuesday!  Around the Morrison house excitement is building...at least for one very happy, sweet, spoiled six year old!  Gotcha Day is tomorrow!  I know you're wondering what in the world that is...Zach's adoption day.  In honor of him on this Tuesday I want to unwrap a mother's love...

'He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD'.  Psalm 113:9

And a happy mother of children is this one!  I love my boys, all three of them, equally.  How can I love a child that I did not carry for nine months or birth?  Good question!  That is the mystery of a mother's love.  It is not conditional as to what type of child she has:  biological or adopted.  The first time I laid eyes on our Zach (before, even) I KNEW he was mine.  I loved him with a fierce and powerful love.  Just because he was not of my flesh and blood changed nothing.

Isn't it wonderful how God put an endless supply of love into a mother's heart?  I can look at my three boys and I can see them as the individuals that they are...and I can love them the same.  I never want Zach to feel like he is loved less because he did not come from my 'tummy'.  He knows that he is extra special because he came from my heart and God chose him just for us.  Out of all the little boys in the world, Zach was the one for this family.

And I think that is pretty special!  So, Happy Gotcha Day Zach!  Mama loves you with an unending, everlasting, unconditional love...

The mother's love that you described sounds very much like His love for us... adopted in to the kingdom, but loved just like we were His own! Happy Gotcha day to you Zach!
