Time for a guest blog from T's Daddy!
First let me say a big Happy Mother's Day to my love of over 20 years...Lisa. Her men took care of her today, from taking her out to lunch at a new restaurant called Jing, to the boys actually massaging her feet with lotion on a lounge chair in the back yard. What a beautiful day we had.
I am not as eloquent as my wife so I will make this post short and sweet.
I can't wait to have this little girl in my arms and am humbled and amazed that we are able to give her a home, a future and all the love that can come from a family completely committed to her. I also want to thank all of you who have been a listening ear to Lisa and a valuable resource for Lisa to learn from those of you who have gone before us in the long process of adoption.
I know that there are many Mums/Moms out there reading Lisa's blog and I want to thank you for all the effort you have ever put into raising your kids. You may get little recognition for all the work that you do, but always remember that your time line is LONNGGGG. It may be decades before you realize the effect of your love and patience...and how many lives it has changed. I am constantly reminded that the comparative ease in which we have learned how to parent comes in large part to the way we were raised. Thanks to Mum back in Australia and Lisa's Mom who went home to be with the Lord a few years ago. We owe a great deal of gratitude to you.
Happy Mother's Day Lisa...your last one with only 2 kids ;) Get ready!!
All my love, David
