    A mother's love, so precious,

    so beautiful. The love is special. This love is comforting. A mother's love for her child, no words can describe. Such a wonderful feeling. Being a mother, is an amazing gift. Having a child is a blessing. Just to see that child grow, just to see that child learn, puts a smile...

    My Angel - My Miracle

    When I was 17 years old, I had completely stopped ovulating. My doctor told me that I could give up on the dream of having a child. I was 17 -- I didn't want a child at that moment. I didn't even have a boyfriend. The doctor wasn't sure if the problem would sort itself out -- or...

    Them Crazy Kids

    "What's being a mom like?" Honestly, it's a lot like being responsible for tiny drunk people who constantly need your attention/ focus every four minutes. Best way I can describe it. Kids are definitely...a handful to say the least. But having them has made my life so much more...
