"Being pregnant and giving birth is like walking a narrow bridge. People can accompany you to the bridge. They can greet you on the other side. But you walk that bridge alone." - African Proverb
A friend gave me this proverb in a card a week or so after i had my baby and I cried when i read it. Yes, i am sure i was hormonal, but it was comforting to suddenly realize their were others who understood this journey i was on and that i was not so alone in my feeling so alone.
Welcome to the world of motherhood Kristina. I am so proud to greet you on the other side. And welcome baby Else. We have all been waiting for you for a very long time. You are a wonderful gift.
