Golden Moms

You did it! Your children have left the nest and may even have families of their own now. You raised them just as you were supposed to do, so why do you feel so empty? As it turns out, becoming an empty nester is a huge life transition. Many women see motherhood as a major part of their identity. After years of child-rearing come to an end, it may leave you feeling lost and unsure of what to do next.
