“Twenty-five years, and three children later, I am finally able to write about how I became a mom.”
Man, do I get that. I went through similar to you (and now have a robust 16-year-old) and I started writing about it immediately, all over the Internet. For almost 20 years. That — writing and re-writing and yet again — turned out to be an excellent experience in how my own narratives transform, something I take with me now into every other little thing that happens in my life. Thank you for sharing your story.
