To all the Mothers that have touched my life

I wrote this 5 years ago, for Mother's Day 2003. That was the first year that I was a mother on Mother's day and only 2 years after I had found Iris. I had a whole lot of emotion going on that year!!

Iris, my Birth Mother, who gave me life, brown eyes and dimples.

Linda, my Mom, who cared for the cuts and scrapes and dried my tears.

Winnie, my Grandma, who made me stone soup and cuddled me.

Lena, my GodMother, who was always there to listen to me.

Rosemary, my Mother-in-Law, who raised my soul-mate.

Hilary, my Love, who loves our son and me unconditionally.

K., Liam’s Birth Mother, who made me a mother.

Me, I am who I am because of each of these wonderful women.

For that I thank them all.

Happy Mother’s Day
