Age doesn't Make You a Better Mother

I think the title best explains what I'm about to rant about. Just because I'm not 30 something doesn't mean I won't make a good mother. Yes I believe that some teen moms give themselves bad rep because teens aren't meant to have children. (Sorry if that offends anyone) But honestly some teens don't make the best decisions. I personally know some teen mothers that have grown up and taken responsibility for their children and are wonderful moms and on the other hand I know some that are by my standards not that much of a mother. But anywho... I am in my early twentys and my husband is in his (almost) mid twentys lol but I have been around babies and children my whole life. I care for a preschooler and an infant on an almost weekly basis. Needless to say I can care for any age child. I think it's a gift. Despite our journey I think God knows I was born to be a mother, and so do our 4 angel babies. It's been a rough week. Lots of babies being born to people I know. Adoption is a crazy roller coaster ride of emotions. You want to be happy for those lucky mothers, but it's hard to know that you will never share that exact same experience and happiness. I belive when we adopt it will be a different kind of happiness. We are so far beyond ready to be parents, and the closer it gets to Christmas the lower our hopes get of finding our baby. (Sorry for the pity party there) On to other matters I'm still excited about Christmas! This is the first year that I am going to make, yes I said MAKE, everyone's Christmas presents!!! I love personal gifts and I think they make the best gifts sometimes!!! Thank you to all those who have been following in this journey! We can't wait to make the announcement you are all waiting for!! We thank you for your kind words and prayers we sincerely appreciate them!!!


  1. This is the blog post that upset your "friend" Terrah? She needs thicker skin because nothing written was offensive. There are amazing mothers of all ages and cruddy mothers of all ages. I always hated hearing, "it isn't your time." If that was the case, there wouldn't be 13-15 year olds getting pregnant.

    Thanks for quoting me!

  2. Lol. It upset her friend and they kind of "ganged" up on me thinking I'm just weak and defenseless. That's what I thought! I still hate hearing "it's not the right time" and things like that. I completely agree! You have given me a lot of hope and encouragement throughout this process, so thank you!
