There is no journey or task you will succeed at if your heart is not in it. You will never succeed at anything if your spirit, soul and mind are not prepared. The task ahead may be daunting, just like parenting can get sometimes, but if you determine to go all the way, you will handle the hurdles better.
As you welcome that first addition into the once two-fold family, determine to do all it takes to raise them right. That will take you a long way, no matter the hardships.
