'twas the night before Cora's birthday...

But somewhere in China a mother is waking up with empty arms, and I can't help but wonder about that. Adoption does not come without complicated emotions. Tomorrow we will celebrate Cora and her special day, knowing that somewhere around the world another mother's heart might very well be breaking. I wish she could see what a beautiful girl Cora is. How she smiles and makes funny faces. How she loves to dance. And sing. How smart she is. How quickly she is learning English. How she plays with her sister. And loves family.

I wish she could see moments like these...



She would be proud.
