February is the month we are talking about love here at Teen Mom 365. Last week we talked about God's love and I shared how that love changed my life.
Another love that changed my life is the love I have for my children.
Jared was born when I was 17 and Matt 16 months later when I was 18. A year and a half after Matt was born, my husband and I got custody of (and I later adopted) his son Jason, who was 5 1/2 at the time. Eleven years later, we met a homeless pregnant teen mama named Shayla, aging out of the foster care system, and she moved in with us (and we later adopted her as well).
As you can see my journey to motherhood was non traditional in every sense. Yet, somehow, each child that was added to our family made the love in my heart multiply, not divide.
The Bible says that God loves you like a mama loves her children.
"As a mother comforts her son, so I will comfort you". Isaiah 66:13
As you know, the love we feel for our kids is unconditional, deep, long lasting, inexplicable devotion.
I can't promise you had that type of love from your parents, but just like I know you love your little one, I want you to know that God loves you.
