“Are you my mommy?”

Those are the first words she said to me when she walked in my house. She grabbed my hand, looked up at my with her sweet little chipmunk face, and asked the only question that could help her make some sense of it all.

It killed me then, it breaks my heart writing it now. My answer to that question has changed. You made me a mommy but, in 5 days, I’ll be sending you out into the world to spread your little wings. Taking a little piece of me with you. But, I’ll forever hold a piece of you with me.

Best friends for life, no matter what.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the courageous mommies out there!
