You have captured beautifully the heart and soul of a mother-to-be and what it means to experience leaving the old behind to embrace the new. Truly our identity is never the same because our entire selves are now wrapped up in that other tiny being. For me, the first flutter of movement of my first child brought for such tenderness and protectiveness I felt vulnerable in a way I never would have thought possible. Excellent writing and message.
Motherhood is certainly a mystery. It's beautiful and wonderful. Enjoy every moment, for they grow up so quickly.
Well written.
This was so beautiful that I wanted to rub my belly, like I did so often while my babies were in there. It is truly a mysterious, completely all emcompassing change to gestate another human; women are so blessed to receive such a gift. Thanks for this piece.
