What Becoming A Mother Means To Me


kaila and mommy
I did not know when I first became pregnant with our first child just how much motherhood would come to mean to me. Little did I know when my then boyfriend and I took our first pregnancy test where we would end up. Ten years later we’ve added two more daughters to our lives and little did I know just how far we would come.
Baby Teething
When we became pregnant with our second baby I remember being so worried about how I could possibly love someone as much as I loved my first. Would I be able to love her and give her all she needed? Then the moment she was born my world came to a standstill. My heart not only loved one daughter but my heart grew to love two daughters. Then watching our girls together has been one of my greatest joys.
See I am a motherless child, I was a foster child since 18 months old. I always wondered if I had it in me to be a mom and when that first pregnancy test said yes I knew. I am a better mother because I did not have one of my own. My children are my everything. My husband and I happily added our third daughter to our life two years ago and again my heart grew in size.

Clearblue is one of those products that we used to find out we were pregnant. Excited, nervous, anxious and yet so filled with joy we were when we say the pregnancy test say YES! That moment your life changes and everything is right in the world. That moment is perfectly described in this Mother’s Day Video.

What was finding out you were pregnant mean to you?
