transitional seasons of motherhood

Autumn is a transitional season — easing out of the boundless, warm, summer days, and preparing for the colder, slower winter and holidays ahead. Autumn is the in-between — a mix of both hot and cold, old and new, a true season of change.  And even though it’s a transitional season, pivoting from one extreme to another, it’s still a season all its own.

As we’ve all learned, motherhood is chock-full of these transitional seasons — babies turning into toddlers, new milestones to celebrate around every corner, and changing family dynamics or circumstances encountered throughout our unique parenting journeys.

The following heartfelt stories explore diverse transitions throughout motherhood and exemplify the true “autumn of motherhood”.
