I am a MOTHER and that's a Fact


This beautiful poem was written by Marilyn Hartman about being a Mother.



I am a mother, although some might argue this fact.
I may not know my child’s gender, but I am a mother none the less.
I may not be able to hold my child in my arms, but you can bet
I will always hold my child close to my heart.

I am a mother, although some might argue this fact.
I may not have issued a name, but I am a mother none the less.
I will never see my child’s little face, but you can bet
I will always treasure this child in my heart.

I am a mother, although some might argue this fact.
I will never see my child grow, but I am a mother none the less.
I will never hear my child’s first words, but you can bet
I will always hear the silence in my heart.

I am a mother, although some might argue this fact.
I will never see my child take a step, but I am a mother none the less.
I will never hear my child cry, but you can bet
I will always hear the cries in my heart.

I am a mother although some might argue this fact.
I will never change a soiled diaper, but I am a mother none the less.
I will never have 3 a.m. feedings, but you can bet
I will always long for them in my heart.

I am a mother, although some might argue this fact.
I may not have carried to full term, but I am a mother none the less.
On Earth, I won’t be blessed with my child, but you can bet
In Heaven I have an angel who I love with all my heart.

I lost one due to Ectopic pregnancy, had 4 others born just fine through God's blessings. Lost one of twins,at 8 weeks of the pregnancy, it was told at the time to me that i had lost the entire pregnancy, and was then found that I had retained one :) who is now to be 24 on Halloween. God is good, though I grieve and know that I will see both of these babies in Heaven. Jesus has my trust for that dear promise that is made to those of us who are Saved and gave their life to him. It hurts though no matter how the loss. Even if we did not know of it until the moment I was told. It is never an easy thing to get past. Have another child if you are one who this applies to, trust God to see your little one again when it's your time to go to Heaven. He is God and can be trusted, believe in Him. He LOVES you :) God bless you.
