Danielle engages in this occupation every single minute of every day, as the role of being a mom is a constant engagement across a lifespan. She will always and forever, day after after day, be a mama to her son Luke.
When asked what does she get out of it, she replied, “I never wanted kids until around age 33 and then at 34 I got pregnant with my first child and gave birth at 35. I never thought I had the mother gene but I could not be more wrong. To see life through the eyes of my son is the best kind of love. He shows me how to appreciate the littlest things and be present in the moment. He teaches me patience, grace, pure love, and so much more. Most importantly, he makes me smile from the moment he gets up until the moment he goes to sleep.”
“Being a Mama is like no other occupation I have ever experienced. It changed how I looked at the world, how I lived my life, and it made me want to be the best version of myself I could be, every single day. Being a Mama is not just my occupation, it is a promise to raise my son to be the best human he possibly can be. Luke is an amazing, super-active, unstoppable force of nature. He will forever and always be my everything.”
