The other thing I’ve always known is that I’m a mom.
Before I conceived . . . before any children were born to me, I knew I was a mom. It would’ve been childbirth or adoption or just bringing people into my life somehow, but I knew I was a mom.
And I knew that being a mom was hugely important. I knew what it was like to have a damaged mother and I didn’t want to continue that. I wanted to be a mom who helped. Who healed. Who encouraged and empowered.
Those are my truths: There is a Truth bigger and truer than we will ever be and that I am a mom. Those are the truths I want to center my story on. The story of my search for Truth and my story of being a mom.
