Mother's Day

Tomorrow is Mother's day.......this year, I will get to celebrate my 5th (technically my 6th, my I hadn't met Adrien until five days after my "first" mother's day)  Anyways, in North America, today is Birth Mother's Day........I have mixed emotions about it for many reasons, but mainly because mothers come in many forms.  Tomorrow, people celebrate Grandmothers, Mothers, Aunts, and close friends.  Why can't birth mothers be celebrated too.  I don't know if it's because it can be painful for a birth mom to celebrate tomorrow when they aren't raising a child they have birthed or if it's because society hasn't deemed birth mother's "worthy" of mother status.  What ever the reason, I want to share my opinion.  I am celebrating my children's first moms.......tomorrow.......on Mother's Day.  And though we won't be celebrating with them in person, they will be in my thoughts pretty much all day......just like every year since I became a mom......this year is a little more special because this year, I can put a face and personality to Adrien's first mom.....This year, Ryan's first mom will be celebrating with her new born son, but we will call her when we wake up so Ryan can wish her a happy day.....
It's amazing how much love a person can have......yesterday was the first time since February that Adrien has asked and talked about his first mom.....so we sent her a Facebook message and within 5 minutes we had another picture of her and a response.  He was beaming from ear to ear and kept asking if she said anything else (they basically had a brief chat over facebook)....it was a beautiful thing.........My heart is full.....
He's so damn cute

Reading to his little brother

CAN NOT get him off a bike.....he's is going to freak out when he wakes up on his 6th birthday to find a brand new red bike!

Always touching in their sleep

They LOVE anything that requires chop sticks to eat with

To all the women who are moms, first moms, step moms, long to be moms, will be moms, foster moms or anyone who has special children in their lives......Happy Mother's Day......may God bless you!
