Once you travel the road of infertility and adoption, Mother’s Day changes for you. Not that you are no longer faithful for your mother but for some, it seems to be one day where you feel like you are wearing a scarlet IF on your shirt. You are surrounding by women celebrating the honor of being a mom while you patiently (or not-so-patiently) wait for your chance. Just three years ago, I spent the church service crying in the bathroom wondering if I was ever going to get that chance.
So today I would like to say thank you and celebrate ALL the amazing women in my life! I am incredibly blessed to have a mom that is also my best friend.
A sister who, through all the twists and turns of life, is always there for me.
Strong women of faith in my family who have served as role models throughout my life.
Sisters in Christ who have lifted me up in prayer so many times and have been there through each surgery and treatment with a word of encouragement and a hug.
Bloggy friends who have become IRL friends and though miles separate us, there is a bond so strong that it feels like they are just down the street.
For each and every one of you, I am thankful!
