PRECIOUS TO LEARN MEAGAN SHALL SOON BE A MOM, TOO!
It came as a surprise to learn on Facebook
My sweet daughter who now seems so far away
Is to become a Mom in October.
Motherhood changes everything, for when we first hold our new baby
Another person, not just the husband, has top priority in our lives
Becoming a mom brings joy and tears, laughter and challenges we could never anticipate
It changes our relationship with our partner in ways that may be endearing, and
yes, sometimes frustrating too, for a baby requires much more attention and commitment
than even the most beloved pet. This new person is our responsibility for many years to come.
There may be times we doubt in our own capacity to give him or her the love this unique child needs.
We may indeed need to reach out so others can support us, comfort us in this new role.
Overwhelm is actually quite common in the early weeks of being a mom, for the first time.
We need the support of friends near and far, and if our own mom is still alive, we may need
her comfort, her wisdom, her concern in ways we’d never imagined as a couple.
For suddenly the family has expanded, and we too need to be flexible and capable of changes
unlike any we’ve experienced before.
Dear Meagan, please know your birthmother Carol would love to be part of your journey
as you and Jaime embrace becoming parents! It would be an honor to be a grandma to this new being! July 16, 2018
