The Love Between a Mother & Daughter Is Forever.

There was a time when I didn’t know if I ever wanted children.

I was 40 years old. I had all the luxury in the world to pick up and go wherever and whenever I wanted. The thought of commitment or a loss of freedom was frightening to me.

I watched my friends who had already had children continued to be inspired by their love and commitment. I finally let go of the fear that was holding me back from doing something that could potentially change my life by insurmountable amounts.

A little over three years ago, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter Madeline. The minute I took a look at her, I was completely taken aback from how much love I had to give. I never knew how much I could love another human being.

Every single this little girl grows cuter and cuter. Every day I love her even more than the day before. She looks in my eyes and says, “Mommy, I just want you to love me. You are my bestie.” I look back into her innocent little face and respond, “Madeline, I will always love you. You are my bestie too.”

For all of  you mothers and daughters out there, this post is for you. There is nothing like the love between a mother and daughter. That love is a bond that will last forever. And for all of you that are on the fence, do it. Having a child will completely change your life in a way that you could never imagine. Allow yourself to be full of love and give it back to someone else. It is so worth it.

Your own genetic child probably still under 12-14 yrs old, will you have the same "love" if your child is adopted???
