Hearing his heartbeat for the very first time
knowing he exists
Nothing can prepare your heart for this new experience
You are no longer your own
You, are a new–you
Feeling that first flutter–knowing he is present
Offering your body to this child, this child that you have never met
but you love and would sacrifice your life for
You are new
you are courageous
you are strong
Your life has changed forever
Every moment, every day, every year that will pass…time and distance will never be able to separate you from the one that you carried-for 9 months.
You are selfless, courageous, strong, beautiful–
YOU are Mother.
