I'm going to take a break from blogging about pediatric strokes today because I want to wish all the moms out there a Happy Mothers Day, especially my three moms. "How do you have three moms?" you may ask. Well, let me tell you.
First of all, Happy Mothers Day to the woman everyone knows as my mother. I was adopted as an infant by a wonderful, loving family who opened their hearts and homes to two babies when they were unable to have any of their own. Mom, you loved me and made sure I had every advantage in life. I appreciate everything you ever did for me. Thank you so much.
Secondly, Happy Mothers Day to the mother of my dear husband. Without you, the man I married would not exist at all. You molded him into a wonderful man who takes care of all of us. You accepted me into your family and treat me like your own daughter. You are a wonderful grandmother to my two sons.
My third mother is my biological mother. I was born shortly before you turned 16. I know that placing me for adoption was a hard choice for you. Thank you for giving me life.
To all the moms out there, I hope you have a wonderful day. To all those who have lost their mothers and have a hard time on this holiday, may you have some peace to day.
