She said it

DaMomma, hitting the nail on the head:

"I definitely think that motherhood involves some critical transference, some shift of closer-together and further-apart all at once. I want her to be brave, so I have to be, even though nothing has ever terrified me more than letting her walk around in the world. You love your children, so you let them go. The joy that it's what they want is the only thing strong enough to overcome your fear and sadness that they're going without you."
