Mother’s Day poem

A friend of mine who struggled for 9 years to have her first born through IVF. And her IVF after brought her gorgeous twin girls. She found this poem once and shared this morning. I thought I’d share it too.

“Happy Mother's Day”

It comes around every year;

but when you have empty arms, it's very hard to hear.

It's a day to celebrate a mother, for all that she done;

and a reminder to an infertile

of the battle she has not yet won.

But what really makes a mother, Is it just conception and birth? Or is there something more, that shows a mother's worth?

It's putting your child first,

in everything you do; it's sacrifice and determination,

and love and patience too.

An infertile woman makes all her plans, around a child not yet conceived; she loves them even though they aren't here, more than she ever could have believed.

She appreciates and understands, what a blessing that children are; she works hard for just a chance,

that motherhood is not that far.

All odds are stacked against her, and yet she still has hope; everyday is another struggle, finding ways to help her cope.

So even though her arms are empty, she can still be a mother too; So say a special “Happy Mother's Day”

for those waiting for their dreams to come true!

Fingers crossed ladies. We all want to experience a different Mother’s Day next time round xxx
