I am very thankful that I have been able to nurse Ben for the past year. I feel lucky and blessed to have had family and friends that were and are so supportive of nursing and my goals for Ben. It would have been so much harder without that support. I am thankful I have been able to achieve a parenting goal, and I am thankful that I have been able to give Ben what I consider to be the best start on life when it comes to nutrition. I am thankful I could breastfeed my son.
