Just curious. For me, it is hard to put into words, but I wanted to become a mom so that I can share my life and experiences in life with my child and be able to teach and guide them. Sometimes, if I am having a really hard day with my son, I try to look back at my reasons to become a mom and it makes a much easier day. So, why did you become a mom?
I wanted to be a parent because I had a desire to parent a child. And by parent I mean to provide a child with love, support, guidance, and the necessities of life. I knew my husband and I had the patience, time, and resources to provide a child with a loving home and stable parents. So we adopted and another expectant mother saw in us those qualities in us - and now we have our son. Parent is also a verb not just a noun. It takes action as well as having the desire and feelings. I make that commitment every morning he wakes up and every night when he goes to bed to be his parent in action and in words. I became a parent to share my world with him.
