For the Almost Mothers

Happy Mother’s Day, almost mothers.

To the mother who lost her baby, but still feels and knows she is someone’s mother.

To the mother who has been trying a long time and feels the pain of this day.

To the mother who had to give her children another home, for them and for her.

To the mother who is waiting for that call to take in a child that needs a home.

To the mother who fosters temporarily and wonders if they see her as she sees them: family.

To the mother who hopes and dreams and waits.

To the mother whose children are grown and gone.

To the mother who takes in and raises her grandchildren.

To all the almost mothers.
