Today I am lucky to be a guest blogger on Life Without Baby. If you ended up on my blog from that site, welcome!
For the rest of you, check out my post, What's Lost...And Gained. You will see it's an adaptation of an earlier one from this blog, "Your Heart." That particular piece happened to be the first time I (ever) wrote about my struggle around not being a mother. The second time was just the other day, in honor of National Infertility Awareness Week.
For quite a while, I knew I needed to write, specifically about my feelings surrounding my grief. This turned out to be too painful and I found myself unable to get the words out.
Instead, I chose to write about a different topic - my experiences working with young children growing up in families with addiction. When you work with kids, there's always an abundance of material!
Now the personal and professional have merged, as they always do. The end result is this blog. Feel free to contact me and leave comments. I love hearing from people!
