Mother's Day was a day I had always dreamed of being able to celebrate with a child of my own. I remember the very first Mother's Day following the loss of our first baby. It was emotional, and it hurt. This past Sunday, I couldn't help but to think of all of those women out there who hurt on Mother's Day whether it is infertility, miscarriage, the death of a child, or gave a child up for adoption. I am so incredibly overwhelmed with thankfulness for being able to celebrate Mother's Day with a happy and healthy 2 year old baby girl of my own. I don't deserve such a gift, but I thank God every day for trusting me with her.
