So Pie's birthmother called a few days ago and said she had a Mother's Day present for me and would like to drop it off. I was surprised, but said come on over.
When she arrived she had a big pink gift bag and a card. The card had a lovely note from her and one from Birthfather thanking us, and saying how happy they both were with how things worked out. It was very sweet.
Then I started to open the present. I'll admit I was a little scared...I had NO idea what it might be. And then I started to cry. Birthmother had taken each of the three ultrasound pictures she had and framed them for me.
To see Pie so tiny, and growing, and finally her sweet little profile was...overwhelming...profound...deeply touching...and so so special. Birthmother was very proud to give me a gift I so clearly loved and I was overwhelmed again at what a unique and important relationship I have with this person.
Now I just have to find the right place to put them.
