Perfect In My Eyes

Mommy On A Mission

The best day of my life was also the day my life would change forever. It was the day I would stop living for myself. Everyday after that the answer to the question: “Who am I?” would be, “Jada’s mom.” Ok, here it is… This is a confession to my fellow moms and moms-to-be… Yes Read the full article…
