Unfortunately, I have many friends and family members who have struggled with being able to have children, as well as those who have lost their babies in utero or shortly after birth. My heart breaks for them, and I look into my own baby’s eyes and cry with gratitude that I have been so insurmountable and incredibly blessed. I am so grateful for my baby boy.
I am grateful to live in a free country.
This election has been hard. I have had family and friends pitted against each other. And even though there are so many things to complain about in this country, I know I am so lucky to live in a country where I, especially as a woman, have an opportunity to vote, to go to school, and to make choices about my own healthcare and body. I am so lucky and grateful.
