My name is Katarina Garcia and I'm 23 years old, married, and the mother of a perfect 1-year old boy. I graduated from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2018, where I met my now husband. Four weeks before graduation, I gave birth to our handsome son, Maxon, via an emergency C-section. After graduation, we made the decision that I would stay home as a stay at home mom, while my husband worked. I made the hard decision of putting off graduate school to raise my little boy and it has been the best decision I've ever made. I loved staying home and cuddling with my son all day while binge-watching the Kardashians and America's Next Top Model. The year at home was much needed after battling for months with postpartum depression. I still struggle on occasions with PPD, but have made huge strides since my diagnosis. Now that I work, I make sure to cherish every moment I spend with my son and husband. Family means everything to me, so I'm happy to share my stories of struggle and triumph as I progress through motherhood day by day.
