Love in the mail


Dear Samuel,

After getting the bad news today, I came home early from work, took a hot shower, and went to bed. When Ed got home, he brought in the mail, which included this package from a woman I met throught the Internet months ago. She wrote:

"I don't have any idea what this little pin was meant to depict, but when I saw it, I thought, 'My baby is around the world.' So I bought a few and I've shared a few with waiting families. I've asked each woman to tuck it inside a purse, or pin it in a pocket, somewhere closed but private, as reminder that this is real. Your baby is waiting--maybe not as you envision, but still, waiting for the right moment to come to you. I can tell you that each family has been successful in adoption. Believe!"

Many tears follwed. Thank you, Elaine. This couldn't have come at a better time.
