Transformed


Pain and fear of inadequacy,  20f3a068f29a09392361c163c8561c91

Instantly swept aside.

Surprised as

A surge of motherly love

Rose up in my heart.

A sense of awe at

The miracle of creation.

We examined tiny,

Perfectly formed

Startled by

Infant’s innate instinct

For survival as

He rooted hungrily,

Nursing moments after birth.

Pleased when

Baby quickly turned his head

Hearing the sound of our voices.mother-newborn-sm

He recognized us.

Then,

Focused intensely on my face,

Bonding to me,

Ensuring I bonded to him.

Transformed instantaneously

Into a mother.

A gift from God,

Pure and simple.
