Today I am happy for all Mothers. I am thankful that I am a Mother to two beautiful children. I prayed and waited so long to be a Mom.
Has it always been easy? No. Have I made mistakes? Yes. Has it been rewarding? Yes, a million times YES. I am so thankful for each day that I have with my children. I am thankful for their friends who call me Mom too.
This Mother’s Day I am especially happy for one Mother in particular. It is because of her selfless act and the love for her baby that made it possible for me to be a Mom. This year she does not have to wonder where her oldest baby is and how her life is.

Nina now has two Moms in her life who have always loved her. Two Moms to console her. Two Moms to protect her. Two Moms to give her advice. (whether she wants it or not).
We have an open adoption, just 19 years later! It is amazing.
One of the best compliments that I have ever received was from Nina’s Birth Mother, Melanie when she told me that I did a wonderful job mothering Nina. My hope is when the time is right we will find Dante’s Birth Mother too.
Happy Mother’s Day Melanie!
I Love You.
