To the Mother With Only One Child

This article by Simcha Fisher was passed on to me some time ago, and quickly got buried in my email. I was thinking about it recently and realized I never posted it. It speaks to moms of one child as well as moms of many, and beautifully describes the metamorphoses that takes place when you become a mother.   

"Dear mother of only one child, don’t blame yourself for thinking that your life is hard.  You’re suffering now because you’re turning into a new woman, a woman who is never allowed to be alone.  For what?  Only so that you can become strong enough to be a woman who will be left." -Simcha Fisher
