Our original Forever Mama ® Design. This is an original Mint & Birch design.
Forever Mama. This piece is inspired by my own story. I grew up in a non-ideal situation where my own mother neglected us and eventually abandoned us (this won't be a sob story, I promise!) When I had kids, I vowed to never forget that I am FOREVER my kids' mama. That means I love them unconditionally, with no bounds and most importantly, that I am always there for them. Whether they are 2 or 18, no matter how much they "act out," "misbehave," or "rebel," I am still their forever mama. I was quite the angry teenager and I know that on the outside, I seemed like a fleeting, rebellious teenager who wanted nothing but to be angry and hurt. But inside, I was crying out for the type of love that only a mother could give. And this little piece I designed is something I made for myself to remember that 1.) I am not my mother, and also 2.) to remind myself how important that unconditional, ever present motherly love is. Through the tantrums, through the bedtime delaying tactics, through the crayon scribbled walls. I am forever mama.
