“Having a baby is a life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day” – Taylor Hanson

I often lay in bed at night and think about what kind of person my little girl will be when she grows up.

Mostly, I wonder if she will follow in my, her mother’s, footsteps. Will she make the same mistakes as me? Will she have the same regrets as me? Will she look for love in all the wrong places as I did?

But then I see past all the negative of what might be and find some peace in other thoughts that flood my mind, if she does grow up like her mother, it’s not all bad.

It means she would love and have another love her back, she would have friendships that would last a lifetime and one day she too would have a little mini-me to worry about herself, and with that, ultimately she would have found unconditional love, and that is the greatest gift in life I could hope for her.
