Final post..

I never did really write a post that wraps up our journey.. I guess it's because the journey isn't over. It has just taken a different turn..

Today is Mothers Day. My first Mothers day with a living child. We have had a beautiful day. Jett is the light of my life, but I also remember his brothers and will always wonder what life would be like if they were here..

I found this poem and I thought it be appropriate to post here.

A Different Child By: Pandora MacMillian

People notice there's a special glow around you.

As you grow, surrounded by love, Never doubting you are wanted; Only look at the pride and joy In your mother's eyes.

And if sometimes between the smiles, There's a trace of tears, One day you'll understand. You'll understand there was once another child. A different child who was in her hopes and dreams.

That child will never outgrow the baby clothes. That child will never keep them up at night. In fact, that child will never be any trouble at all.

Except sometimes, in a silent moment, When a mother misses so much that different child. May hope and love wrap you warmly And may you learn the lesson forever...

How infinitely precious. How infinitely fragile. Is this life on earth.

One day, as a young man or woman, You may see another mother's tears, and silent grief Then you, and you alone, will understand and offer the greatest comfort.

When all hope seems lost, you will tell them with great compassion,

"I know how you feel. I'm only here, because my mother tried again"

And my Darling Jett, I'm so glad I did! I love you my Son, everyday I feel so lucky and so blessed. You amaze me everyday. Thank you for coming into my life xx
