Happy Mothers Day!

I know that this would be better suited in the "Holidays" category, but many of the folks that come to the forums usually congretate in only a handful of areas on here. from what I have seen anyways. So I wanted this to be placed where everyone can see it. I hope that is ok.



I just wanted to send a big shout out to all you Mothers out there!

Today is Mothers Day, a time to reflect on all the great things that our mothers have sacrificed and accomplished in the name of parenting. Many mothers out there have sacrificed a great deal. No matter how big or small that sacrifice may have been, they did it for our well being.

I watch my wife, every day, raise our daughter and her two older children. She does so with such kind and loving intentions. She is firm when she needs to be, yet gentle and comforting when it calls for it. She is a wonderful woman that I envy, cherish and I couldn't be happier to have her as my wife and the mother of my children. I honestly do not know how she does all that she does, and I respect her every day for being the strong, loving mother that she is!

Adoption is a special kind of parenting. It is taking a child under your wing, loving a child before you "knew them" and who they were. Taking a child and raising them as our own. This is truly a huge accomplishment and you also deserve the right to have this day as your own!

For those of you that might have a "second mom". Someone that was there for you when your mother wasn't or couldn't be....Make sure to include them in this special day as well!

One more thing, My wife and I lost our first daughter together a few years back. It will be 2 years this July. When Fathers Day came around that next year, I felt worthless and awful. That my baby girl could not be in my arms. I didn't feel whole, as a father. I felt as though I didn't deserve to celebrate that day, because I didn't have my baby girl. I want to let all of you that have lost a child know...You are and always will be a MOTHER. Regardless of whether or not your child is with you physically, you conceived that child and that is your right as a MOTHER to claim, no matter what anyone says. So, having said that, Happy Mothers Day to you as well!

Today, I ask that all of you out there, take a moment to call or visit your mother. Tell her thank you, for all the things that you know she has sacrificed, and maybe even for those things that you don't even know about.

Of course, I do understand that there may be other "situations" with mothering/parenting that I may have forgotten. I apologize for that and I wish you a Happy mothers day as well!
