That confidence came slowly but surely as every day
went by and I took care of my baby by myself. Fed
him, changed him, talked to him, held him, burped him.
And his acceptance of me, needing me to care for him,
and his unwavering belief as a baby that I would be
there to comfort him when he cried and meet his every
need and desire. And I fully believe that even if I
had had to have help with all the physical things he
still would've known me as Mommy, as the one to hold
him and talk to him. Love is the biggest and most
important thing that a child needs and anyone can give
that if they want to.
