Just two years ago, I was uncertain when and if I would ever celebrate Mother’s Day as a mother myself. I never could have fathomed having four children. let alone all at once. What a difference two years makes! This year, I celebrated Mother’s Day with Rylin, Harper, Sydney & Mason who were once nothing more than a dream. In honor of Mother’s Day, George and I surprised my Mom with a visit to her and her mother too. My Mom has always been there for me, and even more so in the last several years. She cried with me during the struggles of infertility and lifted me up in prayer. She worried on my behalf as I endured a high risk pregnancy with quadruplets and then the weeks to follow with preemies in the NICU. Every week, she unselfishly helps us care for the babies and dotes upon them. She learned that through example from my Grandma who did the very same things for her children. I am thankful to have those strong examples before me and I hope to mother my children as well as my own mother. With another Mother’s Day come and gone, I am grateful for our babies and I pray for those still longing to see their own rainbow babies and for those who said goodbye to their babies far too soon.
