Having been a mom for several years, I had been blaise when it came to Mother's Day. Just another excuse to get to sleep in and get a craft object from my son. Until I found out that we had Secondary Infertility. Going through IVF/ICSI and having to work so hard to become a mother a second time, made me realize that I took this day for granted. That there are many women who mourn this day; who dread this reminder of what they are trying so hard to achieve. I will never see Mother's Day the same.
I feel so fortunate to not only have had my son, but to have my daughter after so many years. I am so very lucky!
I wish a Happy Mother's Day to those who are celebrating it for the first time and to those future mother's to be.
