Guest blogging at America Adopts!

I was asked to write a guest blog post by the fine folks at America Adopts! for Mother's Day.

After much contemplation, what came out was a post about what it's like to be a  Mother in Waiting on Mother's Day, or  a mother who has lost.  We tend to forget about them. Or ignore them completely.

They don't get the breakfast in bed, the carnations in church, and Hallmark definitely doesn't have a card for them.

And all they really want to do is stay in bed with the covers pulled up over their head anyway. But sometimes they can't. They have to spend the day with "real" mothers or their mothers-in-law.

But I hope you will take a moment to remember them. At least in your prayers.

Happy Mother's Day to ALL mothers -- even the ones in waiting.
