Happy Mother's Day to our moms!!! We love you and miss you!!!

And to all my China sisters who have become mothers recently, who have been mothers for a while, or who are still waiting for your children to come home -- Happy Mother's Day to you too!!!

China sisters: As I was sitting eating breakfast this morning at the White Swan buffet, I got teary when I looked around and saw all the people with their new children and I didn't know anyone. We were all suppose to be here together -- it was just sad that I was there today without all my China sisters. And on Mother's Day. This is not how I planned it or would have dreamed it. I'm so happy to have my daughter but I'm missing my friends that have been with me for the past three years. I love you guys and wish you were all here with me.

Happy Mother's Day everyone!!!!!

Good nite from GZ.

Happy Mother's Day to you too Sherry! We wish we were there with you too, but it is out of our hands. Cassie has her mommy and very soon you guys will celebrate Father's Day with Sonny. I am so excited for you guys. You are the perfect little family!

So sweet of you to think of us. Three years ago, we could have never predicted how things were going to work out. Don't let any sadness diminish the pure joy of this day for you though. I couldn't be happier that you are in China now, on this Mother's Day, with your precious girl. Hope you had a wonderful day.

Happy Mothers Day Sherry!! This is such a unique and special Mothers Day for you. I'm so happy that you are in China for this occasion.

I agree, I so wish we were all there on this day together in China. But, this is a time for you to be happy and give little Cassie so many kisses and hugs.

Love you so much, and miss you too!

Happy Mother's Day you too my dear friend, and to all of our China Sisters as well! I remember having that exact same thought while sitting at the White Swan having breakfast and seeing all of the unfamiliar faces. No one could've ever predicted the change of events for any of us during this three year+ wait, but I know for certain that I would've never made it this far without you and the rest of the sisterhood.

Sherry, we will all have our turn in God's timing. You just enjoy that little pumpkin and cherish this Mother's Day there in China with her. For now, I consider it pure joy just to follow along on this journey with you and Sonny.
