Project Egg Essay

1378 words - 6 pages

In the morning of the 31st of May 2012, my son Kevin was born. I will never forget that moment when I first got to hold him, he was tiny, peaceful and innocent, just a perfect little boy. When I kissed his little forehead, I wanted the world to stand still, and keep this perfect moment frozen forever.
I am a single mother. I decided I wanted a child when I was 34 years old. I haven’t found the one by then and I was afraid I will never meet a man capable of being my one and only, the father of my children, my true love. Every little girl has this dream of meeting the perfect husband, having three beautiful children and a nice cozy home with a "welcome" mat in front door. I knew it was a little too late for me to make this dream become a reality, but I still didn’t want to give up the dream of being a mother. I always knew I wanted to be a mother, the matter of raising a child since youth, and being able to imply characteristics, and morals you think are important for a child growth always seemed like a fairytale. That’s why I didn’t let this little hurdle keep me down, I was still a healthy woman who had options, so I got pregnant using sperm donor. After the consultation with a doctor in the sperm bank regarding the most suitable way for me to get pregnant, which was the regular one, no IVF or surrogate needed; I received by email a list of about 7 potential sperm donors, and I had to choose one of them. It was very stressful because with each case you could find something that could possibly go wrong, eventually I found the perfect match; a law student with brown hair and hazel eyes who comes from a Spanish origin, no history of heart and brain diseases. From then on the month flew by and I gave birth to my little miracle.
It's not easy being a mother, let alone a single mother, you are never as prepared as you think you are! The first three months I had a leave from work therefor I could’ve spent all my time with Kevin, though it wasn’t as effortless as I taught. I didn’t realize until then how much care a child needs, he needs to be fed, drunk, amused, well, clean and so much more, it's not all fun and games, and although it is hard taking care of a crying baby all day long it is also very full filing, there is nothing better than to see your child smile.
As a single mother, I couldn’t afford to be a stay at home mom, I had to eventually come back to work and earn a living and sustain a stable life for my child, needless to say raising a child isn't cheap; you need to provide diapers, bottles, a crib, baby proofing your house is an arm and a leg, and insurance is also expensive. But it's just a small sacrifice for what you get in return. I work as a Psychiatrist in a hospital, I work hard but I love my job, I love helping people get through there problems and help them concur it. To be able to go back to work I hired a nanny to take care of Kevin while I was at work, at first I worked only three days a week, therefor I was able to spend...
