Help! I don’t know who I am.
Only yesterday I had an identity, a vocation.
My whole world was changed by one small cry following a lot of pain.
Everything is new to me. Where’s the instruction manual?
“Mama.” Did you say that? Do you know what it means?
All my life I’ve waited for this, but now…
Knowing—and yet not knowing—what lies ahead
Each day bringing a new challenge, its own reward
Reality hits: I’m a Mom!
