When I was pregnant with my son my feet were so swollen I could only wear a pair of my mom’s old garden shoes, after I'd cut slits in the side. Then after I gave birth a friend came to visit. Instead of bringing a toy for the baby or flowers, she brought me a pair of knee-high lace up combat boots she found in my size. It was such a joy to have my own style and personality acknowledged after losing so much of them both to pregnancy. My son is a college freshman now but I still have the boots.
