Mother's Day....

Mother's Day this year was filled with joy and sadness. I experienced a joyful Mother's Day for the second time...oh what a blessing! It still amazes me how one little person can fill such a deep void. A sadness that lived in my heart for nearly 8 years, I will never forget the pain each Mother's Day brought to me. While so many mother's were enjoying the day, I was heartbroken and my arms were empty.

That all change in Feb. 08. G was born for us. He is the love of my life and I'm so thankful to be his mommy. I know this time of year must be hard for his BM but since we do not have contact there is no way I can let her know she is and always will be my hero.

Lately G has been giving me bear hugs, this just warms my heart. He wraps his little arms around my neck and's an unbelievable feeling! I also love to hear him yell out 'Mama' or 'Mommy''s like music to my ears. There really is no love like a love between a mother and a child, I love him with every ounce of my being. I am so proud to be his mother!

So for those of you who are already mother's congratulations. No matter how you became a mother....Happy Mother's Day. I'm still in awe that I'm a mother...

And for those of you still waiting...I pray that you find peace. I anxiously wait right along side of you. When your child finds his/her way to you; you will never want to take a day of that wait back. I for one would not change a thing about my journey. All the heartache, all the years of tears...all of it was so we would find G. For that I wouldn't change a thing!

I can't believe how big G is getting! And thank you for what you said...I know someday this journey will all make sense, and all the pain will disappear! It's good to know I have friends to hold my hand along the way!

I LOVE this post! Seriously, I think I am such a better mom because of the long journey that it took me to get here. I think that I appreciate being a mom so much more than I would have if I had gotten preg. the first time I tried (or at all I guess!) Glad you had a great Mother's Day!
