This picture is of Ryan, Cole, and myself, about 14 hours after Cole was born. It was the first time Ryan met and held his new brother. This picture represents the essence of motherhood for me. I not only had a brand new life, but also my firstborn, and two brothers before me, who are my sole responsibility. I am still in amazement that I have been entrusted with these two precious little lives, and looking at this picture reminds me what a miraculous experience motherhood is.
I am participating in 5 Minutes For Mom’s Giveaway with this photo, on what motherhood means for me.
