By the time I reached my mid-thirties, I had a loving husband, son, daughter, and a home in the country. The white picket fence I dreamt of during my youth captured a lawn that belonged to someone else. We didnít live in a Victorian farmhouse on a gently flowing plain. Our home was a pre-built modular from Pennsylvania nestled in the middle of one of the steepest hills in the Catskills.
Sure, a bigger house, a career and loads of money would be great but, Iíd settle for any environment that supported happy, healthy, confident, and educated kids. When they were sick they went to the doctor; if a teacher called I ran to the school; and when they lost their way I did all I could to bring them back.
Motherhood isnít easy. There are so many forces that change the course of our dreams. I reflect on the steps that carried me through., crumbled beneath my feet, and the heartless diagnosis that changed my life forever.
