kenzie walker Aside from sleep deprivation, the biggest struggle for me is being apart from my newborn. After carrying a baby in your womb for 40 weeks, you develop a bond with your child that nobody else can have with him/her. You want to be there every second of everyday because you don’t want to miss anything. I believe every mom can relate to this. I am not an emotional person, but it breaks my heart to think of putting her in the crib, which is only 20 feet away. When I attempted to place her in her crib for the first time, I cried my eyes out for at least an hour. She didn’t last anymore than two minutes in her crib, even though she was perfectly fine. I was the one who wasn’t fine! I have learned that it’s okay to cry and that I’m not being a bad mother just because I don’t know what to do in every situation. The biggest blessing of motherhood is exactly that...motherhood! My baby girl is a precious gift from God. She is so loved! My husband and I experienced a lot of trouble getting pregnant, which was a heartbreaking experience for us. After months of using fertility medicine and praying, we finally got pregnant! It has been a wonderful journey, and we can’t wait to see young lady Ellison grows up to be!
