In raising my two wonderful children, I have had to learn on my own all of the incredible, mindful, meaningful ways of bringing up children. When my first child was born, in 1987, I had no mother to help me, as my mother had died seven years earlier at the young age of 57. My mother-in-law lives in Colombia, South America, and my closest friends were single and childless. I had little information to go on except that my loving father frequently told me how important it would be for me to nurse my child. He had wanted my mother to breastfeed my sister and I when we were infants, but after two weeks of nursing me she gave up because her doctor told her it would be better and easier to bottle feed.
