Becoming a parent changes your life in incalculable ways. A lot of young people (and even some slightly older people) have children without really considering all of the costs, commitments and emotions that come with the package. The truth is that so much of becoming a parent is in the abstract little things that come with it as opposed to the big picture stuff that we all see on TV.
This story definitely helps put some of those abstractions into very well-formed words. Anyone thinking about starting a family should definitely get fully informed about such a big decision and this makes a great starting point.
