It’s a partnership, and for us, it’s worked wonders to feel like we are in it together and not alone in certain responsibilities. He’s always there to pick up where I left off and vice versa until the job is done.

As a mother, I have to speak up. Those little eyes are looking at me. Watching me. Waiting for my movement. Ready to hear my thoughts and feel my reassurances that they will be ok, that I will be ok. That life for them will be as I promised, beautiful. My son is moving closer […]
