I have two younger sisters, one is 22, about to get married, works on brains in hospitals, and has her life together (or at least more together than mine). The other one is about to turn 21. My youngest sister is a great student, but she is a menace on society. She is the kind … Continue reading My youngest sister is about to turn 21?
It has been one year. A whole year. I am not sure where the time went, but what I can tell you is that it has not been easy since I have said goodbye to my daughter. I have struggled with coming to terms with being a childless mother and even as I write now … Continue reading One year later…
