My 1st Mother's Day, and I'm totally over-emotional!! I never realised how significant the day would feel 💗 I didn't carry you in my tummy. I didn't go through labour to bring you into the world. I didn't give you my eyes, or my nose, my lips or my smile. I didn't breastfeed, nourish or nurture you as a newborn. I didn't wake up through the nights to answer your cries. I didn't even meet you until you were nine months old, and you'd already experienced tougher times by then than I have all the years of my life. I wish I could have missed less, your first smile, first sit, first giggle, first crawl, first food... oh so many things. I wish I could have done more, made you happy, warm, comfortable, full and healthy sooner. Not a day goes by when I don't think of your birth mother. What she went through, what she looked like, whether you take after her, where she is now, if she knows you are ok... she must have loved you so much to want to give you a better life than she could provide and I send a silent thank you to her daily for being so selfless, giving the world you, and making my dream of motherhood come true. You're such a special person, and I cant imagine my world without you in it. You saved me from the heartbreak of not being able to conceive and showed me love is all you need. I've now known you more months than I missed, but I feel like you've always been in my heart, waiting to be found. I still can't believe I'm lucky enough to be your Mummy and I burst with pride every time you call my name. You make motherhood magical. Mother's Day last year I was sad, willing for the phone to beep and tell me the time had come (I'm a complete romantic and was convinced it was likely to happen that day). It was more than another two months before I saw your beautiful face, but you were worth every minute, month & year of waiting. Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing Mums out there, no matter how, where, when or to whom, literal or figurative. And not forgetting my Mum - I'm sorry that it's taken for me to become a mother myself to truly appreciate all you have done for me. You're truly amazing ❤️ #happymothersday #mummy #bigsmiles #BeatrixEllaBontu
