Before I had Addison, I wasn’t sure if I would be a good mom. I loved my life the way it was, enjoyed doing what I wanted when I wanted, didn’t have much patience for anyone that wasn’t going at the same pace as me (mentally and physically) and was most definitely not a morning person. How my life has completely turned around! I still don’t think I would win Mother-of-the-Year awards…not that I know any moms who would ever believe they have achieved that pinnacle of motherhood success…but I have grown so much as a person now that I am responsible for another little human being. My patience is more elastic than I ever thought possible, I find incredible joy and laughter in all the silly things we do, I now get up at 6:30am regularly to go to the gym!! I can’t imagine my life without my beautiful little girl. She makes me a better person.
Wishing all the mothers out there a very happy Mother’s Day, especially our amazing moms. Extra special thoughts for our donor Audrey’s mom Felicia and all those other moms who are remembering an angel baby today.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
