I heard something on Mother's Day that made me very thankful for my mom.
A lady at church who has adopted children wanted to remind us all to be thankful for moms ... and for the moms who raise other women's children.
At first I thought that was very nice, especially since I was adopted myself.
But then I realized how grateful I am that my own mom never made me feel that way. I never once felt like I was anything other than her own child, adopted or not. It was a sense of belonging that she gifted me with, as well as abundant love.
