Sometimes the most peaceful mother and daughter times are encountered in the sea. Every morning I send waves of gratitude out through positive thoughts and prayer to be able to share this relaxing seaside lifestyle with my family.
It's sometimes difficult to imagine a different kind of life, one where our little Love may have been born into different circumstances. A life where we might have to flee our homeland during war or fight with every beat of our hearts to survive a natural disaster. We live a blessed life and we are aware that many only dream for this kind of existence.
When we were trying to conceive, we opened our hearts to the idea of intercountry adoption and wished beyond all reasonable hope that we could offer a child a better chance at education, access to fair healthcare, access to choice.
Although we are Love's biological parents, we still hope to one day grow our family and are still very much open to adoption. I will do everything with this short life I have to be the best mother to my children; to live a full life in the wild mountain air, by the salty sea, amongst like-minded people who want to make a difference to our community by giving good food from the earth, preventing destruction of our beautiful country and by respecting the traditional custodians of this land.
