The day did not go as I had pictured it. My baby turned four on November 12 and I was sick with the stomach flu. All I wanted to do was hold her, but I was afraid to for fear of passing on unwanted illness. So I sit here now with a heavy heart for several reasons, one of which I will share with you. I may have missed out on holding my baby on her actual birthday, but I can hold her today, her finding day, the day she was found abandoned.
I wish I could have found you
Held you in my arms from that very first moment
But that was not God's plan.
Someone else found you
Took you in
Watched you learn to walk
But He knew and was holding you for me.
We will never know exactly why
They left you that day in November
And that's ok
Because God had plan for you, my love, and for me
Before the foundation of the world.
He knew how many hairs would be on your gorgeous head
He knew every detail of your sweet fingers and toes
And, as He knew and formed you in another's womb,
He filled my emptiness with love for you.
He knew how precious you would be to us.
He knew the joy you would bring to all those you touch.
He knew the perfect time.
He knew you would change our lives forever.
