Thank you for your response. It’s ironic that you mention wanting to be a mom. I’ve submitted an article (and it will most likely be published tomorrow) about teenagers and the very first sentence is “No one has parenting mastered. Even with 20 years of experience under my belt I’m still winging it everyday.”
I’m not sure if anyone is ever ready or knows when they’re ready to be a parent, but what I do know for sure is that you figure it out as you go.
