Being a mom has given me so much joy that I didn’t expect. I’ve always been a little apprehensive around children. I’m totally comfortable being with and mentoring young women and teenage girls. People have told me, “You’d be such a great mom”- but I just didn’t have that connection with babies or small people. If someone has a new baby, usually I’ll look from a distance and say “Congratulations” because I’m just not one of those women who wants to squeeze babies. I had no idea what motherhood would be like for me personally- but being a mom has totally changed me.
