  • I was always nurturing. I always knew I would have kids, and chose a profession that would comfortably allow me to have children. When I met my husband, I knew he would make a great father as he was just as nurturing as I was, and his desire for a family was as strong as mine.

    What amazes me is that before I had kids, I loved my husband and thought it wasn't possible to love someone this much. Now that I have a child, I'm amazed at my capacity to love my son. I didnt' think it was possible to have such profound feelings for another person. This has taught me that our capacity to love and care is infinite, It's pretty great!

  • family in the vanIt's all I have ever wanted to be. it's part of who I am even before I had kids. I'm addicted to babies. There is nothing that compares. It's what I feel I was put here on Earth to be. I never felt more proud than the day I became a mom.

  • during my senior year of highschool, i had an urge to just run off and get married. but then i decided instead to go to college and that basically deterred all of those feelings. A few years later I've met my DF and I now know that everything in life happens for a reason. he is truly the ONE for me, and after going to school to be a teacher i sort of decided that I didn't want to have children of my own, becuase the kids at school would be enough, but since I've been with him, everything has changed i've never wanted a family more. I'm now pregnant of 4-5 weeks!! (listen to this song "Bless the Broken Road" by rascal flatts)

  • I have to say when I was younger I never really wanted I got older I felt that I had a lot to offer children and I love helping and caring for people. Once I had my first child I knew that I loved being a parent and I have so much fun with it. Now I have 3 beautiful children and I love being a SAHM and watching them grow and change!

  • I've always loved kids. I wanted to be a teacher all my life for that reason and I was a Teaching Assistant for years. When I was in high school, I babysat a lot. In fact, I took on a fulltime babysitting position for three small children, ages 2 mos., 18 mos., and 3. I was practically their mother when I was just a sophomore. I loved it! I knew instinctively that I wanted my own children someday. I have 4 who are all adults now.
