(Early) Mother's Day
The kids had a Mother's Day program at school, complete with a song and a flower (made with their handprint). It is still unreal to me that I am the mom of 3 (soon to be 4) beautiful, incredible, intelligent, funny, caring, curious, creative, and amazing children. I never imagined how deeply I would love my kids, and to this day I am still in awe of it. On Mother's Day I am also conscious of the moms who are not able to raise their children, and who instead planned a different path for them. My heart aches for birth mothers who had to make that impossible decision, many without knowing anything more of their son or daughter. I wish circumstances did not force families to be broken up, and hope in those that are, that there may eventually be peace on both sides.
