To me motherhood is an amazing journey. It starts from the time you find out you are pregnant and decide to keep the child… through the traumatic time of birth… to the life-altering moment when you look that infant in the eyes and know you will impact the rest of their lives…
To improve motherhood I believe we need more support for mothers who want to return to school in order to educate themselves to improve the income levels for their families. It is a hard first step, and each day in college feels like a lifetime away from our children. It is hard, it is scary…
Some of the greatest issues facing mothers today is not trying to feed our children, but how do we buy those diapers and pacifiers they are wanting. How do we afford the bottles that don’t come with the WIC formula?! How do we know that the children are getting all of the support they need from us, the healthcare, the education? Are we choosing the right paths in our lives and having an effect on our children in a good way?!
