My BFF in IRL is also TTTC last Mother's day was really hard on her b/c she had just reached her 1 year 'anniversary' of TTC and I was just a couple months into trying so i didn't really understand how much mother's day sucks for those of us that have TTTGP. She sent me this awhile back and I thought I'd share with you ladies. Warning, you my end up crying.
?Happy Mother's Day?
it comes around every year;
but when you have empty arms,
it's very hard to hear.
It's a day to celebrate a mother;
for all the trials she overcame;
and a reminder to an infertile
of her loneliness and shame.
But what really makes a mother,
Is it just conception and birth?
Or is there something more,
that shows a mother's worth?
It's putting your child first,
in everything you do;
it's sacrifice and determination,
and love and patience too.
An infertile woman makes all her plans,
around a child not yet conceived;
she loves them even though they aren't here,
more than she ever could have believed.
She appreciates and understands,
what a blessing that children are;
she works hard for just a chance,
that motherhood is not that far.
All odds are stacked against her,
and yet she still has hope;
everyday is another struggle,
finding ways to help her cope.
So even though her arms are empty,
she can still be a mother too;
So say a special ?Happy Mother's Day?
for those waiting for their dreams to come true!
