Motherhood to me, is a kind of love and bond I never knew could exist until that first moment when I laid eyes on my perfect girls. My mother left shortly after I was born so I didn't know the bond that could exist between a mother and her child. Now, I look at my 2 precious gifts and I know without a doubt that I will live for them, die for them, protect them, comfort them, nurture them, teach them, guide them and always be there to love them until it is time for me to go. I will be their biggest supporter and always provide a hug or a shoulder to cry on. I've spent my life always searching for the next thing, the next task, restless, but I've stopped searching. That search ended when I realized I was searching for Mila and Ayla.
I am no longer just Kelly. Now, I am the proud mother of Mila and Ayla and that's the best title I'll ever have.
I just turned 40 on May 1 and it was an incredible birthday to know that I may be 40, but I have these 2 perfect girls after the Dr. said I probably couldn't have children. After Ayla was born and knowing that I was almost 40, I wanted to take charge of my life and do what made me proud and my girls when they get older so I've changed my entire life for them and for myself. I've started working out again everyday so I can be healthy for them (and keep up with them). I quit my job and opened my own law firm.
I want them to look back one day and know that age is just a number and doesn't mean anything unless you make it so. They can do anything at any age.
