I would like to say Happy Mother's day to Ayana's birthmother. I have been thinking about her a lot this week. I am going to try to get some of my feelings down in a letter. It might be random but I try to write uncensored with pure thoughts. Forgive me, if it turns out scattered.
Words can't even do justice the joy I feel from having Ayana as my daughter . I will be eternally grateful for the gift that you have given to us. I pray for you and I think of you often. I wonder what you are feeling and where you are sleeping tonight.
I feel a permenant bond to you even though I have never met you. You will always be remembered. I promise to never let Ayana forget you and her beautiful mother country.
I want you to know that I will be there for Ayana in good and bad times. I will be there for her in her first steps taken to the steps she takes as she walk down the isle at her wedding and all the way, you will be with us, like footprints in the sand.
Happy Mother's day to the mother who made the ultimate sacrifice when Ayana was just 40 days old. Because I can't hug you myself, I pray that you can feel God's arms wrapped around you in the warmest embrace letting you know Ayana is loved and cared for. Happy Mother's day!
Love and gratitude,
Amber (Ayana's 2nd mom)
