The bond between a mother and child is one of the strongest relationships one will encounter. As a mother of a 5 year old, the love I have for my son is unlike anything I have ever experienced. Becoming a mother or father for that matter is the most beautiful feeling that cannot be described.
My son means the world to me having experienced a stillbirth before him it in a sense made me love him more and want to protect, nurture and guide this small human being that God has given to me.
The impact my son has had on me is the desire and commitment to doing my best so that I can not only be a positive role model to him but change our lives. I am determined to combat my depression not only for myself but for him. An to be a successful parent and not let this depressive episode get the better of me.
