Do you remember "the moment you knew?"
I do. It was May 15, 2001 to be exact. I stared at the test over and over again, turned it in several directions in hopes that it would change. Each position yielded the same result...POSITIVE. I was for sure it was a dream. Was it positively positive? Was there a chance that I had missed a step and done it all wrong? What exactly did this all mean?
Just like that, a plus sign changed everything. I was literally creating an 'addition' (+) to my family. The results were in, and I was voted to be a mommy. Sure I wanted a recount, but in my mind (and belly) I knew this was the real thing. I was in fact, pregnant.
At a time when most people should be happy, I was visibly shaken. Torn. Lonely. Confused. Scared. Frightened. Numb.I was young and searching for my own identity. The thought of bringing another human being into the world presented a pressure like no other.
It took a few days to process the results. For the next several months, I would be the vessel for this life. I felt honored to be blessed with this miracle, so I embraced my journey and prepared myself for motherhood.
Even though the line on the pregnancy test has faded a bit, I'll never forget the moment I knew.
