either makes you or breaks you, and having my
son has definitely made me who I am. Before I had
Gabriel, my life was completely different but
now everything has changed for the better. I’ve never
loved anyone or anything like I love him.
Being a mother is absolutely amazing. The things my
son learns and teaches me every day are
also amazing and also make me better. There’s no way
I could ever not want him in my life.
Before I had my son, people would say I was
completely different person. I was a little
wild and crazy. Don’t get me wrong I am still the
hilarious person I was back then but I also had
no goals, and ambitions. But now I have tons of goals
and ambitions for life. I definitely want to
be successful in everything that I do. One way he has
made me better is by me starting school
last semester. I received A’s and B’s in all my
classes and I only have him to thank for the
motivation he has given me. Going to school means
getting a good job and being able to support
him by myself when it’s all said and done.
Another way he has made me better is because
he has taught me what love really is. I’ve
never loved anyone or anything the way I love him.
Everyday when I look in his eyes, all big
staring at me, I know he loves just as much as I love
him. Not to mention the fact that he needs
me and that makes me feel good. Whenever Gabriel
looks up at me and says “mama” it makes
my heart pound with such joy its unbelievable. I have
to say that past 11 months have been the
best 11 months of my life.
I also feel so important when he learns new
things from me and teaches me new things
every day. Recently, I taught him how to throw a
ball, although he isn’t the best at catching yet it
still is and amazing feeling. I’m also trying to
teach him where some of his body parts are...
