Tears for my boy

I will be updating soon, but I need to write this down before I forget. Every now and then, Matthew says something that blows me away. Today was one of those days.
I was catching up on some blogs and Matthew asked what I was doing. I told him that I was reading about some kids who didn't have mommies and daddies. He said, "It's ok mom, you will have me forever." I told him how glad I was and that he would always be my son. Matthew then told me that he had dreamed that a "mean mommy" had come to take him away from me, but that I was "very strong and beat up the mean mommy." He also told me that when he was little, there was a mean mommy who punched him in the eye. He indicated that his eye had swollen shut and he couldn't see. (This statement is very similar to something I was told by a fellow adoptive mom who met Matthew and Maia at their orphanage a few months before Maia's adoption). My heart nearly broke as I held my sweet boy close and reassured him that I would not let anyone hurt him like that again and that I love him so much. Oh, to think of what he has endured...


  1. What a soul Matthew has and what a wonderful future he now faces. Hoping that time will heal him more and may his former memories fade fast.
    He is destined for great things....I truly feel that! He will also thank God that he had a second chance given to him by two very special parents.
    May God Bless All Of You Forever !!!!!!!!

  2. He was given a black eye in the orphanage? Don't you want to just strangle someone? I do! Hugs to Matthew and you.

  3. Thank you God for bringing this boy his parents together. He is safe enough now to begin to process these memories. How hard for you to hear.

    Love to you guys. Praying for you as always.
