Trying to Conceive: Just started

Korto had her first child when she was only 19 years old. She was a young single mother who struggled adjusting to motherhood at such a tender young age. She felt as though her life had come to a halt and had to put aside her dreams of going to school and get a job to support herself and her child. That whole experience deterred her from ever wanting more children. Then she met her current husband, who she told that before they walked down the aisle that she did not want any more children. Although he didn't have children of his own, he agreed. After nearly three years of marriage, Korto has suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to have another child. She says she is desperate to have a baby with her husband.

Korto: My Thoughts on Mother's Day

As Mother's Day approaches, I'm reminded of the precious gift I already possess: the gift of motherhood.


I'm Feeling Quite Overwhelmed
