The blessing of being a mom to sweet Grey could not have been possible without the other half of his genes... his dads. Nate is the single most amazing person I have ever known and has made motherhood so perfect for me. His patience, unconditional love, and pure heart has gotten me through many hard days and trials. I cannot fathom what I could have possibly done in my life to deserve him but I know that I am incredibly blessed.
The motivation I have to be the greatest mom I can comes from my own mom. She is so giving and has never once denied me help or comfort in life. Most of the time I don't even ask and she is by my side to help me along. I envy her strength (she smashes live grasshoppers between her fingers), her energy, her imagination, and her childlike happiness and fondness with the world around her. Everyone needs a Loretta in their life... I am so happy I have mine.
