OTHER Mothers

...I'm thinking of you.

Especially my kids' birthmoms...who gave me the ultimate gift...their most precious treasure...

I'm so glad they're a part of my life and my kids' lives.

I'm thinking of all you other birthmoms out there who get to see or hear from your child...

And I'm thinking of you birthmoms who wonder...where they are and who they've become...

I'm thinking of you who considered adoption and chose to single parent.  And I wonder how that little baby is...

I'm thinking of all you foster moms...

And single moms...

And moms who have angel babies waiting for you in Heaven...

And all you who desperately want to be moms, but aren't yet...

And all you moms who love your children who struggle...

Mother's Day used to be hard for me.  Not just because I didn't have kids...but because I didn't know if I would ever have kids

Seven years ago for Mother's Day Hubby and I told our parents that we had started paperwork to become approved for adoption.  Six years ago, I celebrated my first Mother's Day as a mom.

I.   AM.   SO.   BLESSED. 

If Mother's Day is hard for you...I'm sending a hug...and thinking of you. 


  1. Beautiful post Polly. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. I was so moved by this post. Thank you Polly Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Made me cry, Polly. Very, very sweet. Happy Mother's Day to you, and to all the women out there who have influenced someone in some way.

  4. Polly you have so much love in you that you not only gather those beautiful children, you gather their birth families, too. In Hawaii, we call you our hanae family and so you and Eric are our children, too. You are a wonderful blessing to our grandchild(ren)and Heavenly Father could not have sent a more loving and wonderful mother to Kathleen than you, and a terrific father as Eric. Mahalo nui loa e aloha nui. Much gratitude and love, Pat Holland

  5. You are great, and this made me cry! I'm so lucky!

  6. I agree with Liz, we are lucky. Great Post Polly. I'm glad we have such good memories together, and that we get to continue making them. Love you!

  7. What a beautiful message to all mothers....thank you so much for sharing :)
