Thanks for your support, everyone! I appreciate the support and encouragement.
Definitely, older motherhood has some advantages, I'm still getting used to the idea, as it is like Plan F for me.
But I am definitely doing well in embracing the way life is, instead of how I wanted it to be. Just have my moments when it still really hurts. And it's more for my parents in this particular case.
Anyway, glad to hear about your good experiences and wisdom and strength and to know you all. Thanks again.
