Mother's day

Mother's Day is painful when all you long for is to become a mother. I know today is a very hard day for those who are still trying to have a baby. I know it's the kind of day where you just want to roll up in a ball in bed, away from all the publicity and reminders about motherhood and all its glory. I know because I used to be there. This year is different. I am now a mother, it is now my day. I am so grateful to have Félix and to be a family with him and P. I don't care about the cards or the flowers. All I wanted was to be able to say "this is my day too" and now I can.

But nobody thinks about those who are still strugling. Nobody wishes them "happy infertile day". Since all the mothers and moms-to-be are taken care of, today, I want to wish a good day to all those who dream of becoming a mother. I hope your day is not too painful. I hope you do acheive your goal, sooner than later. I hope you get to receive a Mother's day card one day. I hope you get to eat cake today. Lots of cake.
