Becoming a mother to my son changed me immensely. It made me more patient but also taught me how to turn on the stern (I definitely break out the mom look when needed). My son has made me more imaginative and loving him has given me the strength to get through some pretty dark times. Delivering my surrogate changed everything I thought motherhood would look like for me
What I didn’t know, is that motherhood is the most life-altering experience I was ever going to go through. It would change me in almost every single way I could possibly think. Growing a child was an amazing and exhausting experience. You feel the weight of the world on your shoulders, you feel invincible and the most vulnerable you ever felt. You feel like there’s a before and after.
