This Morning In China

This morning in China a mother cries
She’ll never forget her daughter’s eyes
Her heart is broken and filled with pain
The tears run down like the falling rain.
She has no choice but to leave her there
The cost of keeping is too much to bear
She hopes her daughter will one day know
True love can be found in letting her go.

This morning in China a baby cries
Hungry and scared as tears fill her eyes
Her mother has left her in this public place
Another lost daughter of the Chinese race.
Someone passing by has heard her soft moan
She’s soon quickly taken to a foster home
It’s here she’ll reside in the care of another
Until she’s adopted by a brand new mother.

That very same moment, far away
A woman cries as she starts to pray
Her heart is heavy but filled with much love
She prays for a daughter she thinks the world of.
“Dear Jesus I ask that Your arms would be
Wrapped tightly around the one picked for me
Guard her in China ‘till I make my way
And then in my arms forever she’ll stay.'

Oh, Monica, probably not a day goes by that I don't think of Reese's China mom, and how sad it must have made her to leave her baby.
Love your blogs!

I am so thankful for the fact that Reese's birth mom had the courage to leave her where she could be found for us. I pray that in her heart she knows how much her baby is loved and cared for. I cannot imagine having to make the decision to leave my precious child. God must have been with her when she did. He knew that Reese was meant for us. I pray that God has poured out his blessings on her birth mom.
