Happy Mother's Day to all the beautiful, courageous, and strong ladies who made it through their IF journey and now hold their little loves in their arms!! Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day and cuddle those babies tight today! Celebrate all you've been through and all the wonderful moments that lie ahead for you and your new family. Most of all, enjoy your special day, you all deserve it!! !
Happy Mothers-to-be day to all the soon to be mamas in these groups!! Enjoy rubbing your belly and feeling your little ones nudge you with love taps all day long
While our journeies aren't complete yet, we have come so far and should all embrace that today! We carry precious babies with us today and soon enough they will enter this world and steal our hearts forever! Embrace your Mother's Day with child (or children)!!
To all those who are lurking and may still be struggling: Know that your journey will come to life soon! I know how hard days like today can be! It seems impossible and unbearable at times, but everyone has a path--some are just windier than others! I can speak to that because mine had more twists and turns than I ever thought I could survive through, but I did. Keep faith, enjoy spending the day with those you love, and know that your babies will be with you soon too!
