I Heart Faces Photo Challenge | Motherhood

This week's photo challenge over at I Heart Faces is Mother's, since yesterday was Mother's Day. I've decided to enter a photo that I took of my sister-in-law, Laura, and my niece, Shelby.

Unfortunately, I have not been blessed with the chance to become a mother. My husband and I have spent nearly 8 years trying to start a family. We have been through fertility meds, 3 rounds of IVF, and a cancelled (much to our dismay) adoption during this very long and trying 8 years. I don't know if I'll ever have the chance to be a mom (other than to my 2 furbabies ie: dogs), but my awesome sister-in-law so generously allows me to experience the joys of motherhood through the tremendous amount of time I get to spend with Shelby.

And with that being said...I present to you: Laura & Shelby

And, a bit about Mother's Day...
I hope everyone took the time to thank their Mom this Mother's Day. I have a wonderful, beautiful, generous, loving, & FUN Mom that I am blessed to not only call "Mom" but friend too. Mom, I don't know what I'd do without you!! Love ya! ~K

  1. You captured that moment beautifully. Intrigued by your last name- it's the same as my mother-in-law's maiden name. It's always cool to find others out there!
