  • 1. Seeing a baby transform into a tot. child. teen. adult is amazing!
    2. So if you took my DNA & DH DNA & stuck them together.. exactly what would we get!?
    3. You take care of your kids well so one day you know they will take care of you!
    4. "Family".. Until we had dd.. we where just a couple.. the love. the hugs. the kiss. the adventures of parenthood!

  • I got pregnant the first time at 17 and gave up my child.

    The second time I wanted to replace the child I placed for adoption and fix my broken heart.

    I always wanted children so being pregnant wasn't the issue.
    I wanted to prove to my parents that I would be a GREAT Mother
    I wanted to prove that I could raise a child
    I wanted some one to love and to love me back.
    I wanted to keep my boyfriend from leaving me after we placed our first child for adoption (after all isn't that what families are suppose to do - stay together)

    My third child I didn't want to be pregnant or have another baby for fear I'd hurt my first child by having two more, instead of just one. But he's here to stay now and I love him and couldn't imagine life without him.
