Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday to you...
A brief letter to my parents:
Thank you for choosing to bring me into this world. Growing a human is no easy task - its natural and beautiful and accompanied with discomforts.
Thank you for enduring pregnancy, labor, and postpartum pains. It doesn't matter how I was birthed or fed, just know that I was and that you did an AMAZING job!
Thank you for loosing sleep for me. Whether it was lost sleep 28 years ago or lost sleep 28 days ago, I appreciate you caring enough to make my life a priority.
And lastly THANK YOU for being my parents. Although the above thanks seems to be directed mainly to Mom, know that you too Dad were very much apart of the entire process. You were at moms side through it all and you have continued to show me the love of a parent just as much as mom has.
In celebration I am holding a small contest that could land you a $50 Target gift card.
All you have to do is;
- Visit us on Facebook and like our page, Doula Mae.
- Find the pinned post and like it. (same graphic as the one below)
If you share the facebook post it could help us reach our goal by March 18th (my Birthday)!
