A Sweet Saturday

On the way home, since my mom and I drove together she let me run into the outlet mall to have a 15 minute shopping spree with my birthday money. This, as you know mommies, is a blessing! It's virtually impossible (or I have not figured out the art yet) to go shopping with 2 under 2, so this was great.  The loft outlet is the bomb.

Lastly, we got gas at Buccees... And we got treats! Mom got her fav. Rice crispy and I got my favorite Dr. pepper…

I knew it HAD to be Jesus because just an hour earlier I was tearing up dropping off what feels like my son to see his mother.  In the hours of waiting for the meeting to be over, I chatted with my sister who was telling me encouraging stories about bio families and foster family relationships! She didn't know that God was speaking through her to tenderize my heart for actually meeting M's biological mother. 
As I waited for my CPS worker to respond to my text, my heart started pounding and then I started tearing up AGAIN. Then the text came back from him saying "yes, we're coming out!" 
So there I was waiting to meet the mother of what feels like my little…
