Birthing a child has little, if anything, to do with mothering.

Some birth and use the moment to begin a life with the human they grew.

Some birth and check a box.

Some birth and move onto the next thing on the list.

Some never birth but use the moment of meeting to begin a life with the human they met.

Being a mom is hard. It hurts my soul almost daily as I watch them grow and I choose to let them fail and make mistakes. But I am with them. I will never leave them, nor forsake them.

I am with them.
