Mother's Day

Today is a beautiful day to celebrate motherhood!  I am a very lucky woman and I am beyond grateful for what this past year has brought me - a healthy pregnancy and my beautiful precious daughter.

I so wish I could simply revel in the glow of being a mama without a care in the world today, but I can't.  I know too much, I know there are still millions of women out there who are still suffering, still waiting for their chance to be called Mama.  I am thinking about those women today; I am thinking about the pain of infertility and RPL.

I am so very very excited to celebrate Mother's Day today with Eliza - I will celebrate and be thankful and spend the day loving and enjoying my girl... But I will also think of all the women - those I know and those who are strangers - who are still waiting, still suffering from the pain of infertility and RPL.
