It's Birth Mother's Day!

I did not even know this day existed until last year. And I am so glad that there is a special day to honor these ladies. We have 2 special birth mothers that have been in my thoughts today. 2 ladies that have sacrificed much and in return made me a mommy. 2 ladies of strength and determination. I love them both dearly. One I've had the pleasure to know and the other I've only seen in pictures. But my heart feels the same for them both. My heart is FULL for these women. How can it not be? Their brave decisions brought new life to my family!

To K, if you're reading, I hope you know how much we love you. You can't imagine how often I think of you when I look into my Holden's eyes. You gave us our first miracle. And if you knew our prayers before Holden, then I know you would agree that he can only be described as a miracle. Thank you for your selflessness. Thank you for this gift. We love you so much!And to M, who we've had the pleasure to know over the past 8 months. You know how we feel. We love you so much. We are so grateful for the gift of our second son. Paxton is blessed to experience the love of 2 mothers. And to have this extended family that spoils him rotten with gifts. :) Thank you for the hard choices you've made for this wonderful boy.
