Sometimes.... heart is so full of love for my amazing Hannah XiaoFen that I think it's going to explode!!! I can feel my heart full to overflowing with love for her and just hold her close; drink in her amazing smells; look into those beautiful, loving eyes and my heart feels like it's going to burst!!! Ahhhh....LOVE!!!

This happened again yesterday. Were we doing anything special at the time? No. In fact we were wandering around Wal*mart and suddenly I was overcome with emotion and found it hard not to cry right there wandering the aisle between the bakery and veggies. Once again I was amazed at how deep my mother's love is for her and how fierce it is! I would do anything...ANYTHING....for this precious little girl. My daughter. My love. My life!

Oh Hannah, Mommy loves you more than you'll ever know and more than words can express! Thank you God for the love we share!


  1. Oh Catherine, I am so happy for you, I get you. Funny thing, it happened to me again..just last night. I was watching Beatrice playing, just playing, thinking how lucky we were, I was to have her in our lives. Tears were going down my face, my hubby looks at me, ''What's wrong dear''..oh nothing, I'm just so in love with her in overwhelms me still....she's 5! Catherine, hold on this precious love, we are so lucky!

    Amen to our girls,

  2. In my experience, the love will broaden and deepen even more as you share with Hannah the varied experiences and challenges of life. With it will come the capacity for even more love and gratitude and an increasing need to let it spill over into the world. The story of Hannah and you is one of the most wonderful stories of love and God's grace that I know - a match made in heaven, if ever there was one!

  3. *grin* Totally agree, my friend.

  4. I can completely understand what you are saying. I never knew how intoxicating a mother's love was. Oh how I love the smell of my little one. Most nights, our daughter crawls into bed at some late hour with us. I never thought I would say this, but I love having her sleep with us. Waking up to her beautiful eyes and sweet smile is the most magical feeling I have ever felt. I wonder if my mom ever felt this way by the time I came around. I was #3 child in a family of four children.

    I love watching the video's of Hannah. I have particularly fallen in love with the clip where she says all done while outside in her saucer. Priceless

  5. wow wow wow
    You really know how to bring out my tears. Thank you Catherine for sharing this marvelous love of Hannah with the world. Oh, if only more mothers would feel this way about their precious little ones. Wouldn't the world be a much better place?
    Me and the girls love the videos and especially the ones with the tulips. What JOY!!
    We love you both.
    God be with you.

  6. You are so true my friend. You will never stop feeling that way either. I still feel that way and it has been 5 1/2 years since LiLi was adopted. What the heck was I doing that was so important before LiLi? Who knows! I can't think of one thing that was so important, worth spending or worth doing before her.

    Keep that feeling in your heart always. I have a feeling I will need it when LiLi is a teenager. Hee Hee Hee


  7. That is an amazing feeling and one that will root deeply in your soul. God has blessed you so much!

  8. I know the feeling well...<>
    Glad you can experience it too!

  9. I feel the same way about my daughter. She literally takes my breath away. Sometimes I just look at her while she is playing at the park and I just can't beleive how much I love her.


  10. I Have had so many of those moments, Cath. So very many. Our hearts are full and grateful.

  11. I have always felt your love for Hannah in your conversations and have always admired you for telling the world how you feel, i feel the same way, and we both thank God for our little ones. Your joy, love and happiness overflows... and i am so happy for you and Hannah, as they say...a match made in heaven !! I enjoy your blog so much, her little smile is contagious, what a happy baby.

  12. That love hits me too, I can tear up in a second thinking of my baby girl! You are so wonderful to share these thoughts. It's amazing to be a mom!

  13. those moments are simply miraculous and magical, aren't they?

  14. C - don't think I'm loco here...but as I read your post, I thought...

    I wonder does the Father love me this way? With such extravagant and full love?

    And the answer is a resounding YES! I know full well that He does. Exactly this way.

    So I re-read the post with new eyes...isn't it deep the Father's love for us

    Loved this post...
