Ladybugs


I think Mother's Day is a very bittersweet day for us all. A day that should be spent with our children opening gifts made by their little hands and getting a bunch of hugs and kisses along the way. For many of us, that is not our reality.

To those of you missing your children, those of you trying to conceive and those of you wanting to have children and can't. To the grandmothers, stepmothers, aunts and sisters that cared for us along the way, and to the mothers who birthed us. To the fathers that acted in the absence of mothers and to all the women that have influenced our lives in one way or another.

I wish you all peace on this Mother's Day.

Those are beautiful words Monica. They should be inside a Hallmark card instead of the usual platitudes. Wishing you peace on this day. I have remembered you xxxx

i wish you peace also.......i think you and your husband are amazing people. while i don't know exactly how you feel - i do share in the infertility pain. I know how devastating that can be/is. I have no personal experience with a loss such as yours however I do empathize with you and I do wish you peace.
