Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.
Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.
Reed’s first mother moved out of state three years ago, and has since gotten married and had two children. We hear from her sporadically, not often. Life is busy for her with a toddler and a newborn.
Still, it makes me sad to see Reed’s heart sink when he doesn’t get a response to his voicemail or email messages to her.
This weekend we got an email from her saying that she’d been visiting family in our area, but due to the flu (her son came down with it), she was unable to put us on her schedule.
She sent photos of her family, her 2 year old son and her 6 month old daughter — Reed’s half-siblings. He was so excited to see proof of his big-brothership!
I know I have no control over this, but my wish for 2010 would be for Reed to have more contact with his first parents.
Putting it out to the Universe. Thanks for this perfect moment for him, and, greedy mom that I am, I ask for more.
