very good question. I think to answer honestly, I can tell you that now I am so afraid of how I fiercely love my child. How intense that feels and how scared sometimes you can be for someone when you love them. A different kind of love when it is a child. But going back to that honest piece.....I love him more now today than on the day he was placed in our arms as our son. I was over the moon happy to be a mother but "in love" with that specific child? I didn't know his interests, his personalities, his likes, dislikes ect.... It hit me one day that I would literally die for my child - I would rather be dead than live with out him hear. I would switch places with him to save his life. Of course life does not work that way and so that is why it is so scary. The thought of one day something bad could happen. But I don't think I would have died for him the first few months of his life.

I worried about his health, panicked at his asthma...didn't want to him to be hurt or die. But it is a different type of love. Deeper now. While I would have said, and did say, I "love" my child when he was an infant - I didn't know what that really meant. Now I know what that means and can honestly say that while love is wonderful it is also very scary. I believe other mothers feel the same way about their children. I can't tell you when that light bulb moment came over me that I realized how much of my every fiber of my being was devoted to this specific kid - only that over time he became a part of me in a way no one else has even been.
