Two years ago today, halfway around the world, a woman I will probably never meet gave birth to my daughter. For reasons we can only guess at, this mother was unable to keep her new baby, and gave her up four days later. I am sure that she is thinking of that tiny baby today, wondering where she is now and what she is doing. This woman seems so distant and unreal to me, yet she exists and she will always be an important part of who Rachel is. I will pray for her today, that she will have peace and happiness, and that somehow she will know that her daughter is safe and loved.
