Oliver and His Mother

The devotion of Oliver’s mother has been an inspiration these past few months. As you may remember, Oliver was born with Down Syndrome and a severe heart defect. After taking her son to several hospitals and asking if they could heal his heart, Oliver’s mother was repeatedly turned away. When she learned that LWB supporters had funded heart surgery for Oliver, she was so grateful that her precious boy had a chance for a healthy life.

To Mother

On my most recent trip to China, I got to spend an entire day with two of my kids. Well, officially in the eyes of the US and China, they aren’t my son and daughter on paper. But from the moment I met them in a small orphanage in 2006, I have loved them as my own. Absolutely in my heart….I will forever be their mom. I wake up thinking about them and go to bed praying for them, just like my other seven kids on this side of the ocean who legally share my name.

Since returning from China and seeing them, I have thought so much about what makes a family. What does it mean to be someone’s mom? Read more.

Mother’s Day Wishes

“Make a wish and blow!”

That’s what we teach children when they grab their first dandelion gone to seed. Children see the endless possibilities afforded by wishing. They make their incredibly important wish, fill their cheeks, pucker and blow their wishes as far as the wind can carry them.

I became a mother on Mother’s Day 2004.  In a stuffy Civil Affairs Office in Nanchang, Jiangxi, I received my daughter.  How naïve was I then to the journey that I was just beginning? Read more.
