Favorite Parenting Resources

Before I became a mother, there were many things I thought I'd never do or many I knew I would always do. Just as in marriage, "never" and "always" are not the best words to use.

Reflections on One Year & Infertility

My baby turned one. My baby. The one I dreamed of for years. The one I longed for through heartache and loss. I couldn't know back then that my baby would one day be. She would be one. She would be ours. As I peed on sticks and bought more tampons, I didn't know she… Continue reading Reflections on One Year & Infertility
