I am Mom to Gracie Jean… my loving & kindhearted nine-year-old daughter.
Admittedly it was not a planned pregnancy, and looking back 10 years ago and thinking about how completely freaked out I was to be pregnant. I was scared. Selfishly, I thought my life would be over. I was afraid of the sickness and the pain that comes with pregnancy and childbirth. I was certain that we could not afford to have a child.
I had hesitations on whether I had what it would take to be a good mother.
Fast-forward to today. Motherhood has taught me that the unknown is OK. You don’t have to have a plan for everything.
Gracie brings so much joy to my life, she keeps me on my toes, she stresses me out, she tries my patience, she makes me smile, she makes me laugh. She takes good care of me when I’m not well. She is so much more than I could have ever hoped for in a child. I’m excited to see what her future holds!
