Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother. ~Oprah Winfrey
Last year I was honoured to spend Mother’s Day with this little one.
I won’t say that I don’t miss Giselle like crazy – especially today. But I am thankful that I am not where I was year ago. Receiving the news that her file had not made it to the president’s office like we had been told. Wondering how long until the new president would start to sign dispensations.
Instead we are hopefully nearing the time to bring her home! I can’t wait to celebrate Mother’s Day next year with my 3 children in tow.
Today we celebrated by going to the zoo. Amara hasn’t been there since she was a baby, and I was excited to see this new experience through her eyes. Before we left, I gave her some antihistamine medication as she seems to be developing some spring allergies. I thought about going to get a non-drowsy formula, but we were in a rush. Sadly, she was definitely not herself all afternoon, and it was only as we were preparing to leave that she was doing her usual dancing/skipping run that we are familiar with.
The thing that seemed to stick out in her mind the most about the whole trip was how big Lucy the elephant’s poo was! Typical Amara :) Kylar was delighted to see a Fennec Fox as that is one of his favorite animals.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, and those who are waiting to be mothers!
