Happy Mothers Day




To all the mothers out there, I hope you celebrate yourself everyday, because you deserve it. I have been blessed with this daughter of mine, and feel honored to be her mother. All those things I looked forward to are all coming true, just a little faster then I hoped.

Here are just a few of my favorite things.....Hearing her say Wings, Wings, when we get close to the park with swings, greeting everyone with a big smile and hand waving like a princesss on a float, (wrist, wrist, hand ,hand). Finding myself singing a song and hearing her in the background trying to copy me, her sticky fingers, and milk breath pressing against my cheeks as she gives me a big kiss, Oh I love her so. I could go on and on, just like Im sure we all could, but Mothers day to me is somethhing I treasure everyday, a gift of life that I am blessed to be in.


For this could not happen without Finley's other mother. I always struggle saying birth mom, she is a mother, she is a mother to Finley and she is a mother to Finleys sister. I realize she is not mothering Finley any longer, but she is still a mother and I will always share everyday in my heart with her. I would not be here today as blessed as I am without her


When I met Finleys mother, she whispered in my ear, I love you mom, and I whispered back I love you to mom.....
Just take a moment and think about all the mothers in this world and all the sacrafices they have made for there children's lives. May we keep them all close to our hearts everyday...

Oh, this is so special. Thank you for sharing this - it brought tears to my eyes, looking at that photo and thinking of F's two moms telling each other that they love each other. What a treasured memory to share with F in the future.

Oh my goodness, how BEAUTIFUL! The moment between you two is so special and sacred. What a beautiful story to tell Finley one day. What a lovely thing to acknowledge and respect each other like that by honoring each other's motherhood.

Happy Mother's Day, Erin!! :)
