my mother's day wish

Mother's Day is hard. It's hard for so many people. For those who've lost their mothers. For those who've lost children. For those going through infertility or who've had failed adoptions. For birth mothers. The list continues.

So while I am incredibly thankful to be celebrating my first Mother's Day today, there is a part of my heart that will always find it hard. It's the part where those dark memories of waiting to become a mother live. It's the part where I hold many of my friends' stories and heartaches. It's impossible to experience this day without remembering those individuals - all of you who still yearn to have the moments of joy that so many mothers take for granted.

I hope you find peace today, whether that means stepping away or surrounding yourself with those you love. I hope you know that I'm thinking of you always. And I hope that this is the last Mother's Day you spend waiting.

Happy first Mothers Day!

This is such a bittersweet day for me. Of course I am blessed beyond measure to have my two boys, but my thoughts are with those still in the throes of trying to have their first.

And, I'm estranged from my mom who lives just down the street and my birth mother wants nothing to do with me. So, yeah, there's that.
