A Mother's Day Interview with Amy Clipston + Giveaway!

Mother’s Day is  just around the corner and Amy Clipston stopped by to answer some questions for us about being a mom. Make sure not to miss her interview and also there is a giveaway listed at the end. 

When you first learned you were going to be a mom what thoughts entered your mind?

I was thrilled, and I hoped and prayed my baby would be healthy. I prayed this prayer fervently when I was pregnant with Matthew because I’d experienced a miscarriage two years before he was born. I was terrified I was going to lose another baby, which is why I call Matthew my miracle. He was appropriately born on Good Friday. 

Do you have a tradition on Mother's Day?

My husband and boys give me gifts and cards, and there is always at least one card from the cats. Then they take my mom and me out to lunch or dinner. It’s so much fun! I love my two boys. They are wonderful to me. 

What advice would you give to those who are not Mothers, yet long for children?

Since I have experienced a miscarriage and I know how it feels to lose a baby, my heart goes out to those who long to have children. I don’t feel I have the authority to give any advice, except to suggest that they speak to a fertility specialist. I hope those who long for children will have their prayers answered soon. (Such great advice Amy, thank you for sharing!) 

Thank you Amy for stopping by today and spending time with us. It has been a blessing to hear more about your journey as a mom.
