A complete surrender of yourself, your body and your time for this small and perfect being who all at once consumes your love and teaches you just how fragile your heart is once you experience it as this living and breathing being; as this adorable external form.
Protective and raw, light and dark, everything you could have ever imagined pales in comparison to the reality of this new role.
The impossible irony of losing and finding yourself all at once. A lifetime of mixed messages about your body and beauty shattered and exposed.
Becoming a mother, through flesh or signature, it will rip you apart and sew you back up. Literally, figuratively and emotionally.
