Some of you have even consulted with doctors, paid for expensive hormone injections or surgeries, and cried over so many negative pregnancy tests that it makes you feel sick.
You long to have a bouncing baby of your own, but things aren’t that easy. Your friends around you are getting pregnant so easily, sometimes by accident. You wish for their uterus and their perfectly balanced hormones.
I know it isn’t fair. The world is filled with terrible mothers who abuse their children and treat them with far less than love. To those of you that I know, you have all the characteristics of an amazing mother. You’re caring, loving, supportive, self-sacrificing, wise, and playful. You’re funny, cool, kind, and level-headed.
To the friends who treat us like their own and exude the love of a mother to everyone they pass. You deserve to hold a child one day. Remember that, on Mother’s Day, far fewer mothers will get a visit from their children than you think. You are special and, one day, a child will be lucky to call you mom.
