Being a mom is like receiving a gift every day. There’s always something new to experience. I had no idea how much I would love motherhood and that it would change my life forever. I love the change in me. I thank my daughter for bringing out the best in me. I do what matters most in life, and that’s to be the best mother and wife that I can be because tomorrow, she’ll do something different, and it’s my job to discover all of what she brings to my life. That’s living. That’s motherhood.

I was on my way to work September 2004 when I felt faint and started bleeding. It was the beginning stage of a miscarriage. The doctors were amazed that despite how much blood I lost, they still found a heartbeat. A STRONG one! I was told to rest and to keep my feet up. I prayed and was blessed with a healthy 9 lb, 9 oz. boy on April 20th. My experience as a mother has been priceless and I feel so blessed to have my son.

‘Mama love’ is extreme love, an infinite boundless enthusiastic circle orbiting mama and child.

Mama love begins with the thought of conception. It exists before his first cry, his first smile, his first step, his first word. It is the yearning to pass on roots and tradition. To love without condition.

The first time I looked at my son, I cried because I was overjoyed and my life had a new meaning and a new direction. I never knew I was capable of loving someone unconditionally.
