My Miracle #BabysFirstRideHome

This is my first born. 

He made me a mommy. While all three of my children have taught me amazing invaluable lessons, he taught me how to be a mother. In those first few weeks after he was born, I learned things about myself that I never thought possible. The unconditional, insurmountable amounts of love that motherhood ushers in, is indescribable.  Just indescribable.

I will never forget those first few days after he was born. We spent three days in the hospital.  The night before we went home, he stayed in the room with me all night. I barely slept. Not because he was fussy; he was actually quite laid back. I just couldn't take my eyes off of him. He was perfect. 

The next day, when it was time to leave the hospital, I found myself in a bit of an unexpected state of panic. My husband had gone to retrieve the car and we found ourselves alone in a quiet moment, while we were waiting for the nurse to come in with the wheelchair. A Nun passed by the room and she must have seen the look of distress on my face. She told me how beautiful the baby was and asked how I was feeling. In that moment I broke down. I told her how scared I was and how fearful I was that I would make a mistake.

What she said next, I will remember for the rest of my life. 

She said "dear, do you know how many millions of things had to align in the universe, for you to be holding that beautiful child in your arms today? It was no mistake. He is your miracle. Every child is a miracle. You are blessed and you will do just fine." It took my breath away.

Honestly, it didn't instantly eliminate every fear that I had of motherhood, it certainly changed my perspective though. While I'm sure that I shuddered with every bump and turn that we took on our way home that day, I was more confident in my own personal abilities to mother. 

After all, he was {and is} my miracle.
