,my husband and I became parents after 5 years of marriage when I was 24. It was a very long wait for me as getting married and having babies was my ultimate goal and passion in life. My children have blessed us with 7 grandchildren ages 18 down to 2 with baby number 8 due in 2 weeks. My journey to motherhood was full of emotion, sadness and joy. At the age of 8 my darling mom Carol died of cancer and my dad was not able to take care of my sister and I. At 7 and 8 years old we began our lives without our mom and in a family of 6 cousins and an aunt and her husband. The story is both sad and triumphant paving a way to my meeting my husband, getting married and becoming a mother!
