The months of grief, the months of hope until now, moments of worry. Even in the midst of something as beautiful as new life, that darkness finds its way around reminding me that it actually existed. It tarnishes the blissful ignorance that I joyfully experienced the first time. “

I am proud of my second and third babies for growing so well and grateful for all the memories they tell me : “‘Mom, we are okay’.
