Five years ago today

I don't think this wonderful day will ever dawn without me thinking of what another Mother gave up. My sweet little girl turns 5 today and there is a Mummy somewhere in China who has lived for those 5 years without the little girl she gave birth to.
I know I'll never know the circumstances of her birth - but my heart cannot come to grips with the thought that she wouldn't feel something today - that a Mother could give up her child in the manner she did and not feel something.
Dear faceless Mummy in China - I am forever indebted to you for the gift you have given me - if I could give anything today it would be that I could see you somehow thank you for the gift you have given me - for the difference you have made to my life.
