First I need to apologize to Kelley over at The Lawrences. We had a blog swap and I told her I would be posting my pictures from what I received from her today. But - when I left for work I forgot to get my camera. So sorry Kelley, I promise it will be up tomorrow!
Kendra over at My Insanity is having a Magnificent Motherhood party today. She will be having a Mr. Linky up later this afternoon if you want to hop over and see who other bloggers have given this award to. We are suppose to "choose a special blog to recognize this Mother's Day, write a post about it, and link up to my post, so we can have a collection of Magnificent blogs about Motherhood at our fingertips".
I know a LOT of Mom's with great blogs, as I know all of you do to. But the first person that came to mind was my friend Alicia. I know a lot of you know her and her blog Yaya Stuff. There is not a blog out there that is more focused on Motherhood so that is why I am giving this award to her.
Alicia is a mom. Her whole blog is about becoming a mom. Though her babies, Flicka and Finn, are in heaven, she is still a mom. I have been reading her blog for quite a while now. She makes me cry, laugh and celebrate. Her courage is extraordinary. She is determined to become a mother again. Some how, some way.
Alicia and Josh are an infertile couple. They have been on this roller coaster for quite a while now. They are currenlty going through the process of fostering and then adoption of a child.
I have never met Alicia IRL but we have exchanged emails and twice she has sent me cards. That is just how sweet she is. I can't say enough about her. You are just going to have to hop over and see what a great person she is for yourself.
In closing I just want to say that I will be thinking of Alicia and Josh and all the other parents who blogs I have come across who are infertile, lost a baby or have a sick baby on Mother's Day. Remember if you know of someone that has lost a baby, they are still a mom and a dad. So remember them on Mother's Day and Father's Day.
Alicia I hope you like this award because I can't think of anyone that deserves it more!!
