Mama War

Posting someone else’s blog is not something I normally am want to do – except of course when the brain cells aren’t firing on all 8 or when there is a post that must be repeated. And this is one of them –

You may not know this but Matt and I were unable to conceive our own babies! And some pushy, I meant loving, friends convinced us to try foster/adoption. After a year of waffling (Matt!), we went ahead with it. And the rest is, as they say, history x 5!!! Some other time, we will sit a spell and chat about the challenges of fostering or adopting. But in honor of Mother’s Day, I stand beside all those dear ones who have no mommy to give sloppy kisses or mushy cards or even just infuriate.

Please join the fight – where is the mommy-war for the motherless child?

Enjoy your kids this weekend, because they are the reason you can celebrate Mother’s Day – visit again soon!
