Giving Grief Enough Time

This post won’t have any advice or inspirational thoughts, just feelings — raw feelings of utter disappointment. It’s time for me to let them go. I’ve been holding on to them for the past six months and they are taking up room in my head and heart. I could surely use that space for happier […]

I Insisted on Having an Elective C-Section

I declined the labor of childbirth. Or that’s what my medical reasoning states as to why I chose a cesarean section, according to my obstetrician.

People always ask if my pregnancies have been similar or different (usually it’s a question of feeling different with different gender babies).

To the Son I’ll Never Have

Sweet Boy, You and I are never destined to meet, it seems. It’s a finality that I’m having a hard time accepting, since for much of my life, I have thought of you. You see, I grew up with two younger brothers. Your would-be uncles were fun, silly, annoying, and… boys. I loved helping my […]
