I am so proud to share with all of you my latest piece to make it up on Scary Mommy. I admire this website for its fearlessness when taking on honest writing. For that reason, I am so grateful they deemed another of my submissions worthy of their readership.
It’s a great piece to remind us all of why we parent, especially as we celebrate Mother’s Day. While this piece is about my toddler, I could write endless articles about the struggles and joys of being a mother to three children who did not survive. I could honor each of my babies in the same way; however, Evelyn got my attention earlier last week and so she became my writing focus.
For all of those who have been pregnant but miscarried, lost a child late in pregnancy, have gone through numerous infertility treatments, or have lost a living child, my heart goes out to you today. Despite having hugs this Mother’s Day from my Evelyn, I feel the pain too. I know my babies, including my precious Sophia, are with me today (and everyday). May peace find your heart as it does mine.
Thank you for supporting my writing over the years! Please share my Scary Mommy article with others if you are so inclined.
