“They cut a hole in you and took your son out of you and what’s left demonstrates your ability to love,” I said to her after her session.
She had told me her son was breech and all she could think was, “ok great, now I’m going to have to have major surgery AND have a scar the rest of my life.”
But when she saw her son she “loved him immediately. My friends say they always knew I’d be a good mom because I love so fiercely. I just didn’t know it until I held him and knew instantly that there was no greater love than becoming a mom. I have that scar and couldn’t be more proud of it. He is the best thing I have ever done, and an every day reminder of that is fine by me.”
