~ Christmas ~
This Christmas was really special as it was the first Christmas that my birth mother and I shared gifts.... It has been 6 years since I found out that I survived her abortion and took us 6 years to really heal and learn how to have a birth mother/birth daughter relationship. This year has brought so much healing, restoration and love to our entire family and I was able to gift my birth mother with some meaningful keepsakes that remind her that I will always see her as the woman who gave me my life and my family....and we will always celebrate the birth of our savior Jesus Christ who gave us the gift of life, forgiveness, grace and redemption even in our story of abortion. God is so good! Happy Birthday Jesus! I am so thankful that He came and gave me a huge, complicated, broken but beautiful family on this earth. When I count my blessings...I count this beautiful woman, my birth mother. 💕
~ Happy New Year! ~
As I look back on 2015 I have so much to be thankful for. Family, friendship, love, life, reconciling with my amazing birth mother, filming our story together (releasing mid-January 2016! Yay!!), raising the most adorable kids on earth, so much laughter, blessings, trips, so many incredible opportunities and experiences, sharing my story again and again....and so much more! God is so good and I am so thankful for all that happened in 2015. I can't wait to see what God has in store for 2016. Can't imagine how He can top 2015 😊🎉💕
