To All Mothers

Much has already been said in the online community about Mother's Day, depending on what type of mother you are. I know that what I say on this blog will not reach many, but I'm putting it out into the world so that it can BE in the world.

To the mothers who have had no struggles--May your Mother's Day be filled with love, laughter and the joy of your life.

To the mothers who are dealing with primary infertility and are mothers in their hearts, but not yet in their bodies--May your Mother's Day be gentle as you navigate the day.

To the mothers with children at home, but are dealing with secondary infertility--May your children shower you with love.

To the mothers who did not get to bring children home--May your child find loving and gentle ways of saying, "I love you" today.

To the mothers who did get to bring children home, but had to give them back far too soon--May you find peace today as you remember the time you had, knowing it wasn't enough.


  1. Thank you for writing this. This year, I'm trying hard to find a balance between celebrating being a mother to my amazing little guy and mourning the baby I'll never get to meet. Happy Mother's Day to you!

  2. Thank you for this Brianna. I hope you had a gentle day with all your children close to you.
