I can relate to your original post. My situation is somewhat different. I already had one child and did not want any more. When I got pregnant with my second, ten years later, I was not happy.
I hated being pregnant, and I was not looking forward to raising another child. I loved my oldest and was content with just her.
It's nine years later (my baby just turned nine) and I feel so blessed and greatful I had her. She makes me smile so much and brings so much joy (I am tearing up as I write this) to my heart. She is so affectionate and loving, too!
When she gets off the school bus each day and RUNS toward me, I feel like the most loved person in the world. Her unconditional love for me which I did not have to do anything to earn was my greatest gift from her.
My message to you and other moms is, look for the little joys this child brings in your heart, and what this child is here to teach you about yourself!
P.S. I just read your last post and I am so delighted to hear your journey has had a positive turn for you and your daughter!
