"Before having my son, I had ‘heard’ of maternal instinct but had no real concept of what this actually meant. The moment he was out of my body, our bond was fierce and YES, very animal in nature. If there was any ‘question’ as to whether humans are animals (I just love how people conveniently try to separate humans from the animal kingdom to perpetuate this idea that we are superior) the feelings brought on by motherhood should clear that up in a second.I have nightmares where my son is lost, kidnapped, killed, just gone from me & I wake in terror. The thought of something happening to him infiltrates every fiber of my body at every moment of the day. If someone ever tried to take him and I was anywhere within range, they would have to kill me to get him out of my grip.So it breaks my heart. Literally, I can feel the ache in my chest when I think of mother animals being denied their newborns. Babies being taken from their moms only to be slaughtered. It’s a horrible thought what that must feel like to an animal that doesn’t understand what is happening. Although, they do understand, don’t they? Their baby is going and will be gone forever.Sometimes it’s too overwhelming to think about it…”
