I was terrified when I found out about you. A young girl of 18, you think you're so grown up at that age. I wanted you so badly but the reality smacked me in the face when I looked at that little strip with two lines. Your life almost flashes by your eyes. One of the first people I called was my boss, he had just had twin girls, and after crying down the phone to him I will never forget, he said to me, "I know you're scared right now, but the moment you see those two little hands and feet, it will all be worth it". And it was true. And I went on to prove to everyone that at 19 (by the time you came into my life) I could rock this motherhood stuff. I battled PND silently because I was too stubborn and proud to ask for help but looking back I wish I had have spoken up. But here we are, eleven years later. Kicking ass and taking names. Watching you grow into a confident and fierce yet beautiful and caring young lady has me gobsmacked that I could create such a person.
