Going through yet another Mother’s Day without a baby, can be very challenging. I am so blessed to be celebrating mother’s day as a mom of a 2 year old. But there were many years that went by where we were trying to have a baby, using all means possible, with no luck. We really felt like we may never get to experience what it feels like to be parents. I was always pretty strong and really believed that one day God would bless us with a child, but I can remember Mother’s Day feeling particularly cruel.
People at the store would say “Happy Mother’s Day” to you…even though there was no baby in sight. I know they did not mean anything by it….they just did not understand that they were reminding you that yet another Mother’s Day was coming and going without you being a part of it. It is ok to have these feelings, just know that you too will have your time. Even though it is so hard to understand why that time is not now. Now that we have my little boy I look back and see that it was all worth it in the end. Keep trying….don’t give up!
I saw this peom on a forum not to long ago and decided to save it and share it with y’all. Wish I could say who wrote it (wasn’t me ), but I am not sure. Hope you enjoy it!!! I found it to be so true for all infertile “moms”. Good luck with your infertility journey, hope your Mother’s Day is soon!!!
