Wow…it seems so surreal to celebrate my first Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day was my least favorite day of the year for several years. I felt forgotten.
This year, Luvy and Baby D made it super special.
We unplugged all weekend and just relaxed.
Made a special breakfast on Saturday.
Baby D got me a necklace with his birthstone on it.
Luvy got me roses and a “Child of My Heart” WillowTree figure.
I love it because it was made especially for multicultural families! How precious is that?
My dad even came up this weekend to see us!
I die over this pic of Baby D in my dad’s hat!
Luvy instructed Baby D early that he may never forget a Mother’s Day. I’m thinking that Baby D better take notes from his daddy on gift giving. If he does, he will make one young lady a very nice husband one day…. but I don’t want to think about that!
For years, Mother’s Day was so painful. There is no pain like wanting a child, yet being infertile. You feel forgotten and it seems like everyone around you keeps having babies.
This was not lost on me this year. Even though I have Baby D now, I am still very aware of the pain of infertility.
I think that mother’s deserve to be honored and celebrated…don’t get me wrong. However, I don’t think we should alienate those women who do not or can not have children.
You never know who is suffering in silence like I did for so many years.
Just know that you are never forgotten. God has a plan for your life. Although I didn’t enjoy my infertility journey. I know that God’s plan for my infertility was so that we could adopt Baby D.
For that, I’m thankful!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s and future mom’s out there!
I hope you all have a Marvelous Monday friends!
