I DID IT!
The 8th of January 2017 marked the first birthday of my baby girl. It was this day one year ago that the most emotional, challenging and rewarding year of my life started. Being in the delivery room with my mom by my side, having to go through the pain of childbirth with no pain meds, and then having no idea what to do when my baby cried was rough. Yep, you guessed it, I was a single mom who had no clue what was in store for me. Sleepless nights and tearful days were all I knew in the beginning. Postnatal depression got the better of me and each day felt like the end of the world. But here I am one year later and all I can say was I MADE IT! Being a single mom is all too common these days and it may feel like you will never make it through the day, but when I look at my little girl all I can say is it was all worth it!
