Motherhood challenges us. Motherhood changes us. Motherhood is not just something we do, it embodies who we are. Our children are gifts, too big to hold in our hearts yet somehow always small enough to hold in our arms.
The moment you learned that you would be mom to multiples, that gift amplified. Resounding joy and uncertainty might have battled for your thoughts. Peace may have come over you at the long-awaited answer to your cries for a child of your own. Maybe panic set in at the thoughts of your now seemingly too small house, car, and paycheck. Whatever your first thoughts, it couldn’t match the reality of two, three, or more little ones to love, all at once!
Mothering multiples is both exhilarating and exhausting. It comes with unique challenges and triumphs. It is motherhood intensified. And so we gather. We are here to support, to learn, to have fun, to celebrate, and to love. It may be a wild ride, but you are not alone.
