Meet Raisa Roberts
Her thoughts on motherhood:
During my last trimester everything that could have gone wrong went wrong, the baby wasn’t growing as he should, I fell down, then my pressure went high so I was induced 4 weeks early. My son was 3 pounds 13.5 ounces. He was so tiny but instantly that motherly instinct kicked in and all I wanted to do was hold him and never let go. Being a mother has taught me to be nurturing, patient, strong and just to enjoy the adventures of motherhood.
One of the most challenging things for me so far is doing this on my own as a single mom. Being a mother means sacrificing your time, sleep, your weekends all in an effort to do the best you can for your child. I’ll forever be his guide, his cheerleader, his superhero, his coach, his nurse. This is a very beautiful journey and with my support system the possibilities are endless.
