THE JOURNEY TO MOTHERHOOD
In this heartfelt poem from blogger and Instagram sensation Sarah Molitor, the creative force behind @modernfarmhousefamily, readers get a glimpse into the journey a mother takes during pregnancy.
Inspired by her own pregnancy and filled with humor, I Grew With You vividly illustrates the growing bond between mother and child. Twelve beautiful, month-by-month scenes capture the beauty of childbearing and the miracle of life – from conception to baby's first day at home. Molitor helps show children that, during pregnancy, not only does the baby grow, but the mother grows, as well – emotionally, spiritually, and of course, physically.
Rich in diversity, I Grew With You showcases women of all ethnicities, shapes, and sizes as they share in the unifying experience that is pregnancy. Children will be able to read about the sweet, exciting, funny, and take-your-breath-away moments that their own mothers felt while bringing them into the world.
I Grew With You is a warm, heartfelt lullaby that reminds the mother and child of the precious road they traveled to meet each other, leaving both with a deepened sense of love and bonding.

I bought two of these books. One for my expecting daughter in law and the other for a friend. They were so appreciative of these and loved them!
We purchased this book for our daughter who is pregnant and expecting her first baby. I read it aloud to my husband and barely finished reading it when I started sniffling trying to hold back the tears. It was just what we wanted for her to be able to read to her own daughter.
I bought these for my two daughters who just had children. What a sweet book, I just loved it and know the girls will enjoy reading them to their babies.
I was crying reading this book
I purchased this book for a baby shower gift and I have received it and read the story and it is absolutely precious. I recommend this book to all expecting and new mothers.
I will be gifting this book this weekend to our Daughter in Law who is carrying our 1st granddaughter due in May. A beautiful book that is perfectly written for a expectant mother.
