Starting tawaaf from Maqaam-e-Ebrahim

Q: We started tawaf from Maqam-e-Ebrahim thinking that it was the black stone during our first 3 umrahs (despite having read the umra guideline). After the 3rd umrah we realized the mistake. Will the umrahs be valid? 

A: The umrah is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
