courage of a mother

Eugene Cho posted this photo with the caption, “Never underestimate the courage of a woman…the courage of a mother.”

And my eyes got teary and my mind went to a place it doesn’t go often enough. The first mom. I’ll be honest, I don’t yet think of this woman often enough. My thoughts are generally tied up in the details of the adoption process — forms and emails and fees. But this picture was the reminder I needed to pray continually for the courageous woman who is our child’s first mom.
