Mother’s Day 2014

All that I am or hope to be … I owe to my Angel Mother – Abraham Lincoln

Today Sunday 11th May, is Mother’s Day in many countries across the world. A role that is more often than not, lacked in recognition.

So, if you’re still blessed to have your mother around give her a call and just thank her for being the great woman that she is. For she worked hard in your formative years to give you all she could within her capabilities.

She smiled through your temper tantrums, because you didn’t get your way. Or finally got that toy or piece of clothing you kept nagging her for, but not appreciating what she endured to get it for you.

When she said “..she wasn’t hungry” .. just so you could enjoy a filling meal, it wasn’t because she wasn’t hungry! She was putting your needs first!

Now that you’re all grown up and living your own life, don’t forget to give her a call at least once a week…or message her during your “busy” schedule. You still her little baby, in her eyes and heart. She misses you more than she cares to admit.

To the birth mother of our son JJ,

you are our HERO!

It is because of your unselfish decision to give your birth son, now our adoptive son, a better future that you picked us to care for him.

Thank you! Thank YOU, for allowing my husband and I to experience the joys of parenthood.

JJ is growing up so fast. He is an intelligent young man, with guts and determination. No challenge for him, can’t be overcome.

He isn’t selfish, and is always willing to share.

He loves the outdoors, and exploring his surroundings.

Below our messages to the moms in our lives …

From hubby to our moms …

Happy Mother’s Day to the two mom’s in my life…you are both as close to Godliness as can be…thank you for your endless sacrifices and undying love. You have helped mould us into the men we are today, the fathers we are to JJ. We love you and appreciate you so much. Happy Mother’s Day!
