There is something deep, significant, and powerful about the desire to be a mother. It’s like… there is a seed planted deep inside of your soul that makes you crave motherhood with every fiber of your being. It makes your heart ache for the love of a child that does not yet exist.
I know this feeling first hand, because I struggle with it on a daily basis. For the record, Anthony and I are not trying to have a baby. I know some women can relate to this feeling because of infertility problems, and my heart breaks for you. My situation is different. As much as I want to be a mom right now (with all of my heart), we have personal reasons for waiting. We don’t want to bring a child into this world when we don’t feel that we can take care of it the way that it would deserve. We are hoping and praying that our life circumstances change sooner rather than later, but until then, it is a waiting game.
