The month of May will always be a special month for me. Especially May 2010. As you know, my husband and I struggled with infertility for three years before we were able to become parents. I spent numerous Mother’s Day services hiding in the bathroom crying. I tried to hide it but my eyes couldn’t hide the hurt. That all changed in May of 2010.
After many months and a total rollercoaster of a journey with adoption, I was finally able to stand up and be recognized as a mother. I cried that day too but for different reasons. I had a beautiful baby girl with a crop of curls starting to show on my lap and it will be a memory that I never will forget.
The special moments of May 2010 continue on. My husband and I attended seminary together and although I started first, because of my health I had to take it a little slower so we ended up graduating together. After they called our names we were able to walk across the stage hand in hand. After five long years, I had my MDiv in Pastoral Care and Counseling.I had worked so hard for that degree through three different surgeries. I will never forget both John and I wearing our caps and gowns to pick up Abby from daycare.
To celebrate all of the goodness we have been blessed with, we took our first family vacation to the beach! For the first time in years, we didn’t have to worry about our classes. We weren’t constantly on edge waiting for our adoption agency to call or managing the stack of paperwork that went along with it. We were officially a family of three and words cannot describe how amazing it was to soak in all of those moments. May will always be a marker of special things in my life.
It is always nice to have a physical marker that can act as a reminder of a special occasion or milestone. Necklaces and bracelets are the usual go-to gift for women but I think a watch could be the perfect gift to help remember a special time in life (get it? a watch reminding you of the time? Ha!).
