From the moment you get pregnant and realize that a family – your very own made-from-scratch family – is on the horizon, your thoughts shift. People will ask you what’s to come for your growing family, and as much as you resent their intrusiveness, you start to wonder if there will ever be more.
Once you get through those horrific, non-sleeping first months, your mind begins to meander. You can do this. You can make something again.
And you start to plan. The plan is good. Even though you don’t have a lot of money and don’t know how you are going to afford the baby you already have, you know that since you want this one thing enough, you will be able to make it happen because that’s what families do.
All of a sudden, that special, wonderful thing you had been planning and working so hard to create just EXISTS. Although your partner assisted you in creating that one special thing, you know that it was all you who brought it to its fruition. Your motherhood is engorged and you are elated.
