For me, motherhood is this role I feel like I was always meant to take on. It’s the area of my life I’m most confident and comfortable in. If money weren’t an issue, I’d buy a huge house and already be working toward that dream of a family of five kids.

But even aside from money concerns, I’m confident in my ability to do this. I believe I’m capable of mothering one or two more, and experience has taught me I can help kids with the special needs that foster care sometimes requires.

Most importantly, though: I just know in my heart that this is the direction I’m supposed to be moving in.

Will it be easy? Absolutely not. But motherhood never is.

And I’m a big believer that anything worth having is worth fighting for. There will be challenges and missteps. There will be times when I want to complain or feel overwhelmed by it all. But that’s life. That’s motherhood.
