Once a mother, always a mother...I get that. But this Mother's Day, and every one going forward, will be different. It just will.
I know that I have two beautiful children still here with me...believe me, I know. They are the reason I am still alive... the reason I get out of bed each day.
However, my love for them can't stop my pain, or still my yearning for the child that isn't here, or for the mother I can't see or call... the two missing pieces of my broken heart. I am still a mother, yes... but I am forever changed.
