Today has been a tough day for several reasons. It was one of those days that you start to lose hope and faith. Then the day turned on a dime. Isn’t it amazing how that can happen? It all changed with a FaceBook message from my friend Renee Booe. She had told me that Show Hope contacted her a few weeks ago because of her posts of the pictures she took of “Gotcha Day” with Bo. They thought they may have cared for Bo at Maria’s Big House of Hope. She reached out to me at that time to get Bo’s Chinese name and DOB. We had no record that he had spent time at Maria’s Big House of Hope, so I really didn’t hold out that much hope.
Then late this afternoon Renee said she heard back from Show Hope, and to check my email. I opened my email, and there was a BEAUTIFUL email from Show Hope. The lady that emailed me, Cathy, said that they had indeed cared for Bo. When he was in their care, he went by the name of Julien. She said that he was very loved! That I can completely relate too. Bo is so darn loveable!!! She also said that knowing he now had a family would be of great comfort and celebration for his nannies. I sent her back an email thanking her and the staff for taking such extraordinary care of Bo. I have spent many days wondering how it was possible that Bo survived. With all of his scars, how did he find the will to live? Now I know! He knew love! He received great care! He was nursed back to health! He had hope in his heart because he knew love.
Oh did I mention they attached a picture? The first picture we have of our precious son. Are you ready for some cuteness?
As you can imagine, I quickly emailed them back thanking them! Of course I had to attach pictures of Bo now, so they can see his shining face again. Hopefully my email brings as much happiness to them as their email did to me!
Hope….what a beautiful thing! Thank you Show Hope! Thank you Maria’s Big House of Hope! Thank you!!
