Today Carson and I ran to the mall to get a few errands done (Bath and Body Works had Wallflowers on sale, but don't tell Wayne). We planned on going in and eating a quick bite at Chik Fil A. When we walked in the first person I see is Carson's birth mother and her husband. We walk over and talk for a few minutes, getting caught up on things. Wayne and I run into them quite a bit, but Carson is usually not with us. Fortunately today he was. After we got our food, we went out and sat in the food court and I asked Carson if he knew who that Special Lady was. He said, is she the one who grew me in her tummy cause yours was broken? I said yes. He went on to ask if I ever had a baby in my tummy, and a couple other questions that pertained to the subject of adoption. I was impressed by the fact that he completely understood who she was and how special she is to us. While we were eating, I was thinking how cool would it be to get a picture of Carson and his birth mother, so I checked back where we saw them, but they were gone. I was a little disappointed, but prayed we would see them again, and she would be agreeable to a picture. We hadn't gone ten feet after my quick prayer... and there they were coming around the corner. I asked if I could snap a quick picture, and she said sure. (Wayne if you are reading this.... this is a HUGE hint for Mother's Day). I only had my camera phone with me..... I did not have my digital SLR, which is a little too big to schlep all over the mall. It really would have been nice to have a small inexpensive point and shoot camera... Like the Nikon Cool Pics... or something along those lines. But I digress, today Carson was able to put a face to the Special Lady. As soon as I have her permission to post the picture I will (talk about spitting image). She gave us a gift like no other, and this Mother's Day I want to honor her as my son's birth mother.
