Making Sacrifices

October 23rd, 2011 by Rebecca Harper Editor

In the series premiere of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” newlyweds Snow White and Prince Charming make the ultimate sacrifice for their daughter: They place their own lives at risk in order to save the baby from the Evil Queen. (She has a vendetta against the fairest one of all — and her one true love — and vows to reign terror on their fairy tale lives.)

While Snow White and her Prince resort to an enchanted wardrobe to protect their little one, the scenario left us thinking about the many sacrifices parents make for their young ones. How has being a mom changed how you think about yourself, and what sacrifices have you made? Tell us about them in the comments!

    Being a teen mom (I actually did try the adoption route, but unfortunately there were legal issues to deal with and then it was hard to find a couple who wanted the daughter of a rapist), I’ve had to face the reality of giving up a lot of dreams — including my chance at a dance career, because I want to have something with a steadier income. I’m determined to go to a good college, so I’ve had to give up any hint of a social life to get homework done and still spend time with her.
    Most painful of all, I’ve had to sacrifice a lot of time with her to go to work, school, and to study.
    Becoming a mom drastically altered the way I view the world. Previously, everything was filtered by my own goals and ambitions, but now everything is seen through what is best for my little girl.
