Mothers are made through a multitude of circumstances and a woman’s experience of motherhood can vary from child to child. These are just two of the things I’ve learned since becoming a mom over a decade ago.
Nearly 35 years ago, I sat down at a small wooden desk to write a book. With pencil in hand, I began writing a story and wrapped it up three pages later. I was 10. In the summer of 2014, while sitting on the beach, I decided it was time to make my goal a reality.
The Making of a Mom is a memoir of what it means to be a mother. It is also a story of inner struggle and discovery, as I explored the joys, pains, and the depth of understanding I gained as I wondered at every twist and turn, “Am I mom enough?”
