Here's the first (kinda) picture with my three (kinda) kiddos. Today, on Mother's Day, I feel especially blessed to have been given the opportunity to take part in the upbringing of these three beautiful children.
This morning we went to mass and I felt very emotional during the service. All that has been given me...all I have been entrusted with. After mass, we lit three candles, one for each of the kids birthmom's (afterall, the kids have two mom's to be thankful for today) and one for Tessa, that she be healthy, well-cared for, and come home soon.
God bless all the mother's today. A special thank you to MY mom for always being there for me, for always loving me, even when I was unloveable. I love you mom.
And hugs to all the mom's-to-be, the mom's in waiting who desperately want to hold their children in their arms. I know how it feels to have the ache of empty arms. You're in my thoughts and prayers today.
