Painting drawn by an elephant in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

I wish I was your tummy mommy

and carried you inside of me.

Then you wouldn’t have that empty space

that time just cannot erase,

nor all my love

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I wish I was a tummy-mommy, too. What a blessing it must be to physically carry your child at the very beginning of their creation and life. But I am so blessed by God’s grace to be a heart-mommy! I am grateful and exceedingly honored that He chose me out of the Mommies in the world to carry my children in my heart!

    • I am thankful to be a tummy mommy to my three sons, but my heart aches for my daughter every time she struggles with this. Not only did I miss out on this part of her life, but on her early toddler years, too. Whenever she talks about missing her tummy mommy, I listen, and then I tell her how much I wish I was her tummy mommy.
