The road from stone cold junkie to mother has been a long awkward one. The only goal I never trully believed i could complete was having children. My kids are definitely the best part of myself. They make me look at the world and see the good that exists there. They believe in super heroes. To them, I am Wonder Woman minus the costume. I love them. I like to squish their little faces. I like to hear them laugh. My children make me believe that not only is recovery possible, it is necessary. They need me to be present in their lives. I didn't get clean for them. However, I realize I need to stay clean to experience the daily miracles they bring.
