The Most Amazing Soul

I have known an amazing soul for quite some time now.  She has encouraged me from afar for what feels like a lifetime.  And at the same time she has also inspired me with her optimism and her positivity through everything she has endured.

Today, I was honoured to meet this most amazing women in real life.

She went out of her way to pick me up and then whisked me away for lunch and an amazing chat.  Having never really met before, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Yet, we instantly fell into conversation just like two long lost friends.  It just felt right.

She also spoiled Baby MPB with amazing gifts, and offered her help when we needed it most.  All of this was clearly beyond amazing.

Yet what struck me more then anything, was the gift she gave me, likely without even knowing it.  In our time together, she gave me the most beautiful gift of a few hours of normalcy.

She removed me from the extreme chaos and anxiety that has consumed our lives as we are trying to get home.  She gave me the opportunity to finally show off Baby MPB to a friend – it was so much fun introducing him to a special person in my life (as we are still thousands of miles away from home, none of our friends or family have met our sweet son in-person yet).  She let me vent about normal first-time mom stuff, which was incredibly therapeutic.  And, she listened as I talked about our current insane struggles due to our adoption agency.  She helped me laugh.  And she encouraged and supported me with her every word.

Our visit was exactly what I needed.  She radiates love, compassion and grace in a truly remarkable way.  As she held Baby MPB and we said our goodbye, I felt renewed energy and hope.

So to you, my friend, thank you.  Thank you for your help and encouragement when I needed it the most.  Thank you for always being a ray of sunshine in my life with your contagious optimism and positivity.  Thank you for reminding me that no matter how hard life is right now, we will get through it.  Thank you for loving me and Baby MPB too. And from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the beautiful gift of knowing you and for allow me to call you a friend.

  2. Oh wow. I am smiling so big through my tears. You and your blog has inspired strength in me during my hardest times. To be honest- it felt a bit like meeting a celebrity in real life then realizing you could be best friends. The love you and Mr. MPB have for each other and your son just radiates from you all. He might be the cutest little guy I have ever met. Holding him simultaneously filled me with a deep ache and restored all my hope that the universe will make things right in the end. You are a spectacular Mom and woman and I will treasure our time together always. Xoxoxo xoxoxo times a million.
