Finding Peace in Motherhood

I became a mommy when I was 16. Facing the world as a young mom is tough, scary, and confusing amongst many other things. It’s hard to embrace motherhood when the world says you’ll never make it. They said to “give him away”.

Welcome to the board, Applaud.

It's great that you've been able to find your balance between motherhood, earning a living and giving back to the community. It's not easy to find a dynamic balance - it's like those acts that one sees where the person has plates spinning everywhere and he has to keep the plates spinning at all time in order for them to not fall down. There's always a plate that needs spinning, but from time to time everything is so nicely in synch.
