Word, word, word. It is painful and beautiful and intense and scary all at once. I struggle with this myself and have a similar history with relationships. Thank you for writing this. Feels like a combo of "too late to turn back, oh shit" and "wouldn't trade this for anything." Quite a mindblower.



What a beautiful and heart-string pulling post. Thank you for sharing it.


I'm sure you've heard this quote by now, but I immediately found it to be true upon the birth of my child: "Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone

That's what it feels like. Your heart and every emotion remotely connected to it are torn from your chest and left out in the wide open air for anyone or anything to take aim upon. The shock of the feeling, the power of the emotion, the almost debilitating fear...could any book really explain it?

Have no fear. You will become more brave than you have ever been for your child. And it's okay, I think...it really is...that no other love compares...
