Silas and I were having a conversation a couple of days ago. We were talking about Michael, Sarah, and John in Bulgaria and how in just a few weeks we are bringing them home.
Silas asked, "What about their mama?" I replied that their mamas weren't taking care of them. "What?!?! That's not what mamas are supposed to do."
I love that Silas knows the role of what mamas should be doing in caring for their children. He seems to have forgotten (at least for now) how his own mama didn't take care of him, as she left him in the hospital after being born. I am thankful to be a mama to five (and soon to be eight) and it is such a privilege to me. And I am further thankful that Silas has attached to me as his mama. :-)
