Today's prompt on Blogtember is:
Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.
There have been many moments when my life as I knew it took a turn:
moving across countries and to different continents,
marrying my best friend,
quitting teachers college to study Journalism and deciding that wasn't what I wanted either,
the day we found out we would need fertility treatments to fulfill our dream of becoming parents,
a positive pregnancy test,
and that second positive pregnancy test.
All moments that changed my life and made me the person I am today.
But the most life changing moment has got to be the birth of our son.
Nothing could prepare me for the all consuming love I would feel for this little man,
or for the fear of losing him,
for the joy when he wakes up in the morning, because that means I can hug him again,
for the the heart bursting pride I feel when I see my husband play with our son,
for the gratefulness I feel that I am his mama.
From the moment he was born my life as I knew it had changed, it took a turn for the better and changed it for good.
