I never had kids. first I was too young, too immature to make a good mother, then I was in a toxic relationship, then I suddenly required a full hysterectomy and the chance was gone. When Oscar and I met, we talked about adoption but before we came to a decision I became ill, and then disabled.
This all leads up to the wonderful gift Amanda and Tommy gave us in October 2008, when our godson was born. Although we don't have much to do with his day-to-day care, to us, he is the son of our heart, and we will be part of his life, and he of ours.
So, I celebrated Mother's Day by calling my mom, calling my niece Liz (who is having her very first Mother's Day this year) and by being thankful for Sean.
