A "mommy love story" is how a Utah author describes her 32 page picture book, Child of Mine. As a child, I knew my mama loved me. I saw it in her face, felt it in her touch. However, it wasn’t until my first baby was placed in my arms that I truly understood what a mother feels. That incomprehensible, transformative rush of unstoppable love fills your heart with a joy and a sweet tenderness you never before knew existed. It is undeniable, full of never ending promise and it changes everything. This story is about that.
Subtitled "The never-ending promise of a mother's unstoppable love," Child of Mine tells the story of a mother and her son and how her affection continues to grow from the child's birth into adulthood.
"I really just wanted to tell my kids how much I love them; what it has always felt like to love them, Hogg says. "I wanted to help them see themselves through my eyes because when I look at them, I'm filled with wonder and joy. I wanted them to know that would never change.
