Love.. Love.. Love.. Babies!!!!
If I had any doubts about going from a career woman to a mom, I no longer do. I love taking care of these babies. I do understand that its not the same as a full time mom, but still... I was made to be a mom. I also no longer have any doubts that I will love my baby through adoption. I love these 2 babies that I have tended in the last few months, so much and they are not mine. Still.. I would step in front of a bus for either one of them. I hope their parents know how much I care. It can't be easy to leave your baby with some one else, but I take the best care possible.
Angela, The 8 week olds mom, left a bassinet here for me to use for him. There are diapers and blankets in my apartment. I have formula and baby bottles in my kitchen. When I walk by these things when he is not here it makes me a little sad, I miss him. But mostly I miss knowing my own baby. I can't wait for this journey to be over, and yet, I enjoy the anticipation too. I love walking through the baby department, looking at clothes and pricing diapers. I love talking to other mom's about their babies and their sleepless nights. I love dreaming of our future child, planning names, activities and our future. I don't know you yet, little one..
But know this... Mommy loves you!!!
