Hello mommies and welcome to Mommy Tell All Monday, our weekly blog series that focuses on motherhoood!
Today I have a friend who is going to share one of her greatest mommy struggles that turned into one of her greatest mommy blessings. Such a beautiful story of adoption to close out the month of November, National Adoption Month. Let’s read how this mommy considers herself the lucky one.
“Mom”! A name I’ve wanted all my life. I am the youngest of 4 siblings and all I did growing up was babysit and dream of being a Mommy some day. I wanted a large family…6 kids!
I met my husband David when I was 19. We married 9 months later and I immediately wanted to start a family. My husband, however, wanted to wait until he was further along in his education at ASU and closer to a steady salary paying job. He’s smart…I just wanted babies and I didn’t care about anything else! Good thing he’s smart. 3 years later, we decided it was time. 1 month later, we were pregnant! Phew…my biggest fear of not being able to get pregnant wasn’t going to come true. Quite the opposite really. Pregnant on our first attempt! Awesome!
