The second I saw a plus sign on my pregnancy test, I felt like a mother. I didn't feel the same way I do about my daughter now, but I was overwhelmed by a sense of heightened responsibility that took hold of me.
I told Michelle she may not see it now, but her life will change profoundly after she delivers the baby. I told her being a parent is a feeling that she will not understand until she actually has the child.
My world was rocked upside down when I delivered, but I already felt like a parent while expecting. When did you first feel like a parent?
