I sit here watching my baby sleep after a tough night, and think of my friend who just had her first baby this afternoon, a very anticipated little boy. Although each child is different, I know keenly what she faces in the next few weeks. I am so eager to meet him and have our children grow up together as we did.
We met when we were 6 and became best friends, and 3 years later I moved away. I didn’t see her again for 16 years until she moved nearby and we became friends again. We were pregnant and now are mothers together.
I feel blessed that I have a healthy child, thankful that she did too, and in awe that we are going through this journey together. I can’t wait to walk the road of motherhood with her and our children by our sides.
