Invisible Mothers

I would just like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the invisible mothers and those who deeply desire to be a mother, but have yet to achieve it.  Invisible mothers you know who you are.  You're the ones who were pregnant for a short time and lost your baby.  You might be the one who made it halfway or to the end of your pregnancy only to have your baby die.  Perhaps you actually got to birth your baby, held it in your arms then much to soon had to say goodbye.  There's one more area of the invisible mother that I think is every parents worst nightmare, it's the parent who loses their child either to illness, murder, or a tragic accident.  I'm not downplaying the loss of a child at any age or gestation, but I think invisible moms have it worse because the child they lost was their first.  It was the child that made them a mom.  Only people don't seem to think of them as moms because they don't have a child in their arms.  So to all these women I would like acknowledge your God given title of mother and say Happy Mother's Day!

For all the other women who were blessed to never face the loss of a child, Happy Mother's Day to you too.
