I might have mentioned here also that I just became a member of the Million Moms Challenge. The Million Moms Challenge is sponsored in part by ABC News, the UN Foundation, BabyCenter and Johnson & Johnson, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It’s an honor to be part of this prestigious group of women to write about topics of extreme importance, topics meant to improve the lives of women and children all over the world. I am so proud to be a member of this group and would LOVE it if you could please comment on my first post: Going from One to Two, and now on my second comment On the Job Training. Here is a snippet from my latest post:
When I held my daughter for the first time, I felt like I was dreaming. The feeling that swept over me was unlike anything I had ever felt. I hadn’t been prepared for having a girl My belly was shaped like there was a boy inside and everyone predicted “she” was a “he”. Being one of three girls, that somehow overwhelmed me. And of course, she was beautiful. She came out of my body weighing 8 pounds, 14 ounces. She had these gorgeous blue eyes that penetrated into my own.
So, there were tears. There was joy. And then there was fear.
Curious what kind of fear? Check out my article here and let me know in the comments on the ABC site if you can relate or if you think I am way out there. It’s all about having a conversation, please join in.
Disclosure: I am being compensated by ABC for being a member of the Million Moms Challenge but all thoughts expressed are my own and my real experiences.
