This is going to sound cheesey but every Mother's Day is perfect in my eyes. My husband and I tried for over two years to get pregnant. We endured a tragic miscarriage in there as well - I was rear ended and immediately started bleeding
When we went to the reproductive endocronologist (RE) he told us that we'd never have children on our own. While our problems by themself were small put together they meant no children. He said our only hope was IVF. We were planning our first IVF when we found out we were pregnant!! I was estatic he, however spent the morning telling me I was going to loose the baby. He said the odds were against me and with all his years of experience he knew I was going to loose the baby. He said I shouldn't get excited, they'd prepare for another D&C.
Then, I had to make the hardest phone call ever. I had to tell my husband even though we were pregnant I was going to loose this baby. And, they were already preparing for it. It was so stressful for both of us knowing we were going to loose this baby. But, my husband said something to me that stuck - God ultimately ends up giving life not a doctor. While the doctor can help us ultimately it's in God's hands. And, I trust him fully.
Lo and behold I never lost the baby!! He's my firstborn and he turned 4 this year in March. When he was seven months old I found out I was having a SECOND baby. Shocking because the doctors didn't seem to think we'd ever have any on our own.
And, last October I had my third boy. I can't tell you how much I loved mailing our Chirstmas cards to that doctor with all THREE of my boys. And, knowing that all three were miracles that defied all his education and experience.
My Mother's Day is perfect just having my three kids there. That's all I'll ever need...because there was a day when I thought I'd never celebrate Mother's Day.
