Mother’s Day can trigger an emotional response that you had not predicted. I have a message for those of you who wish to be parents, but thus far have not had success. Do not think of Mother’s Day as a time for which you are saddened by the fact you have been unable to grow your little family, but rather celebrate your resilience and strength. Celebrate how you have full-heartedly invested yourself into family building. Be proud of the tremendous amount of strength you have had to survive the great disappointments and keep moving forward. It takes a strong woman to be able to pursue a family through all that we go through. Your strength and resiliency will teach your future child many great values and lessons. Happy Mother’s Day to all the strong women who would give anything to have a baby in their arms on this day. You too are great Mothers.
