My Most Amazing Moment as a Mother

KIWI Magazine

1. “My eleven-year-old is autistic and was nonverbal as a toddler. My most amazing moment was the first time he said, ‘I love you, Mommy,’ at the age of five. It was something I’d taken for granted with my other children. But with Brian, no sweeter words had ever been spoken.” — Liberty Johnson, Geneva, Florida

2. “After having two beautiful children by birth, my husband and I adopted two boys from Uganda. One of my most amazing moments was the first time my homegrown kids and my heart-grown kids met. Immediately they joined together in playing wooden trains as if they had always known one another and were meant to be together. My heart rested in knowing that even though we became a family in an unorthodox way, we all had the capacity to love and be love—and that was enough.” — Karissa Barner, Lakeland, Florida

3. “In my daughter’s journal for school, she wrote that her favorite thing was when I sing to her at night as I tuck her in. I wondered how this could be so special, but it made me realize that the simplest things mean so much to our kids. And she must love me a ton, because I am not winning a Grammy Award anytime soon!” — Kristen Schmidt, Greenville, Ohio

4. “Just sitting in a chair with all three boys in my lap is what makes me feel the most amazing.” — Falon Caruthers, Wildwood, New Jersey

5. “Having our daughter come along when our son was 18!” — Rebretta Veasey, via Twitter

6. “When I started getting sick a few months ago, my son looked at me and hugged me and said, ‘I will take care of you like you take care of me.’ At that moment I realized I was doing a good job at raising my son to have compassion.” — Annmarie DeSantis, Linwood, Pennsylvania

7. “After a really hard day with my son, we began our normal bedtime routine—bath, books, and bed. I was ready to rush out of the room when he asked me to ‘snuggle for a little bit.’ Frustrated and tired, I begrudgingly agreed. After I turned off the lights and laid down next to him, he grabbed my face, leaned in, and said, ‘Momma, you’re my best friend.’ Suddenly, the long day seemed worth it, and all was put in perspective by a single sentence.” — Jamie Gradoville, Royersford, Pennsylvania

8. “Seeing my kids grow into respectful little guys! They enjoy everything about life!” — Stacy Lane, via Twitter

9. “Every morning when I wake my girls up for school with a kiss on the cheek and they give me the biggest smiles, that to me is the most amazing moment of my day as a mom.” — Kay Harmon-Giddings, via Facebook

10. “As you feel their heart beat against yours for the first time, you hold your breath…it’s really real!” — Joyce Blair, New Port Rickey, Florida
