First a Mother, Forever a Friend


When she was born, I was scared. I thought I didn't have any maternal instincts. I thought we wouldn't bond. I thought she and I would have trouble connecting. 

Sometimes, what we think is completely disconnected from the truth. 

The truth is that, because I'm her mother, she is a part of me. And, though our relationship will change over the years to come, my love for her will not. 

First a mother, forever a friend.
