Most women enjoy celebrating motherhood. On Mother’s Day… Flowers, sentimental greeting cards, big hugs, “I love you” phone calls . . . maybe even some Belgian waffles in bed. Of course, for women who yearn to be called “Mommy” but still have empty arms Mother’s Day can be a sad holiday.
Her biological clock ticking louder each day, Sharon Simons felt her heart sink as yet another “Mr. Wonderful” turned out to be a frog—not the prince she was waiting for. But when the right man did come along, their journey toward parenthood seemed more like a machete trail through a jungle than the smooth path of her dreams. Enduring multiple failed IVFs and the loss of their unborn twins, Sharon and her husband decided to adopt—taking a whirlwind trip to Russia and navigating the rough waters of international adoption red tape. Their journey ended, or rather began, when two baby boys were placed in their arms for the long trip home.
Part love story, part adoption memoir, and all heart, Mom at Last is the story of one woman’s fierce determination to become a mother. Full of setbacks and emotionally devastating pitfalls, ultimately the journey leads her to true love and pure joy. Mom at Last will inspire women who find themselves on that sometimes difficult journey to motherhood, giving hope that motherhood is possible and encouraging women to never give up on their dreams. While every journey to motherhood is different, Mom at Last lets women know they are not alone in the struggle toward motherhood.
About Mom at Last, Sharon Simons
Sharon had a dream to become a mother which she was determined to follow. Her path was difficult but ultimately successful. Born in New Jersey and living in Delaware, she is married to her soul mate Rick and the very proud Mom to her two sons Dylan and Hunter.
Sharon struggled to become a Mom, dealing with the uncertain world of infertility including three In Vitro Fertilizations, Tubal Pregnancy, and the Loss of a Pregnancy with twin boys at 19 weeks. That loss only made her more determined to become a Mom. Thankfully that dream became a reality through the use of International Adoption.
Sharon Simons took her experiences and created Mom at Last, a community of women who struggled through their journey towards becoming a Mom, at Last! She wrote Mom at Last: How I Never Gave Up On Becoming a Mother to inspire other women who are having a difficult time becoming a mother. In addition to creating the Mom at Last Community & writing her Memoir, Sharon Simons has created the Mommy’s Sippy Cup™ (wine glass), TheAdoptionApp™, a Domestic and International Adoption Process Mobile App for iPhone and Android, and TheAdoptionKit™, an Adoption Survival Kit™ to help you through the adoption process.
