Dear M.A.

One year ago today you gave birth to "our" son. I can only imagine how scared you must have been. I hope you were not alone. I know so little about you; I can only hope that your employeer who reared "our" son for the first 3 weeks was there to help you bring this amazing boy into the world. I feel guilty to have so much happiness born out of your own sorrow. I want you to know that I think of you often and wished we could have met you while in Ethiopia to express my gratitude for your strength, courage, and love for your child. I want you to know that he is loved by so many people and that he is a very special little man. He has the most gorgeous eyes that are deep and thoughtful. He has brought so much joy to our family and is the blessing that my husband and I had waited years and years for.
I hope that you have recovered from your decision to give up your child for a hope he would have a "better" life. I wonder if you think of him often. I wish there was a way to let you know how wonderful and amazing he is. I know that you are an amazing woman because Minnow is a part of you and he is amazing. You have given us and this world an amazing child who will do wonders and will change the world. He certainly has already changed ours and yours.
I celebrate you on this day. I thank you which is in no way a suffient way to repay you for this most amazing gift.
Thank you,
Minnow's Mom
