13 of 20: You do not need to give birth to become a mother! I have MANY proud mommy moments where I have witnessed a child's first steps, first words, first giggle, first pesh in the potty, first time WALKING without a walker or holding onto to someone! 🎉 I have spent nights next to hospital beds, holding sick babies, and rocking whoever could fit on my lap. I have snuggled, cuddled, and forced children to love me! (Vane!) I have been peshed on, puked on, spit on, and have wiped more food boogies then I can count! I have witnessed a child go from writing everything completely backwards to correcting it the right way. A child learning to speak Spanish when all the volunteers speak English. A child doing a puzzle all by themselves! (Cried today over that one!) Watching a child go from a high chair to sitting at the big kids table. I've witnessed a passing of a child and children go from good to bad, and also those from bad to good. I witnessed 2 adoptions which was INCREDIBLE! Most importantly, I have learned to love unconditionally! I love these children, all hundreds of them and I will never forget them! #ossovolunteer #ossocuenca #ossomami #amalavida #myheartbelongsinecuador #allyouneedisecuador
