Becoming Mothers: When your water breaks in public & baby manipulates you from the womb

I’ve been thinking a lot about Mother’s Day lately and an epiphany came during a recent bike ride: Why not have women write in and share their stories of how they became mothers?

I issued the challenge at Mile High Mamas and was thrilled with the response–everything from a teen pregnancy (and how it saved her life) to surrogacy to open adoption to more traditional tales.

To kick everything off, the story of my soon-to-be 8-year-old daughter, Hurricane Hadley. On May 25, she graced the world with her presence. Her birth and subsequent life have been one WILD ride.

Not to mention the car we now owe her for her 16th birthday because of it. Read her story here.
