tonights little chat

lilah: "Mom, how does a woman get pregnant?"
me: "Well Lilah, a man and a woman really love each other a lot and the baby grows in her belly."
lilah: "Well then, how come you couldn't have a baby in your belly? ...because you love Baba a lot."
me: *pause* (did she just seriously ask me that?!) "Well Lilah, God had a very special plan for me. He told me 'No' to a baby in my belly and he told me 'Yes', to a little baby girl in China. He knew your birth Mama wouldn't be able to keep you and look after you, so He chose me to be your Mama. Lilah, you weren't in my belly, God put you in my heart instead."
lilah: "I really want to be a Mom when I grow up."

  2. this is the most beautiful thinking, I cried and smiled at the same time when I read it.

  3. Smiling through tears. Do you have any idea what a great Mama you are?! That was the perfect answer.

  4. That really was a great answer! She asks some powerful questions for a girl her age.

  5. That is the most precious chat I have ever heard. What a beautiful answer! I am going to remember that for when my little bug asks that same question.
