With Mother’s day just around the corner I stumbled across the following post by someone. It is truly amazing what she wrote about adoptive mothers and I hope you take the time to read it yourself.
I know in the end this journey will be well worth all of the time, energy, money, and tears that has been put into it because in the end we will have a child that will come to us when they have to tell us exciting news and hope we are as excited as they are about it, are sad in tears looking for us to make it better, or to counsel them when they don’t know what to do. I look forward to all the things that come from being a parent in the future and know that we just had to take a slight detour to get there and in the end our family will not just be growing by a baby but by our baby’s birth families as well.
Here is to all the current mothers out there and all the mothers that just haven’t gotten to bring a child home yet but are waiting for that day to happen! Happy Mother’s Day!
