Of all the hats I've worn, "Mom" has been the most exciting and empowering (and also the most tiring). 

I grew a human, care for him, provide for him, and I am responsible for helping to mold him into the person he will become. I don't know of a greater privilege and honor than that. I truly don't think one exists. 

None of this is to say that it has not had its challenges, though. It's a learning process and I've got a lifetime of learning to do.
