Hearing that I was having a son at the ultrasound with his father, our almost one-year-old daughter, and my other children surrounding me was one of the best days of my life. I felt like our not-so-little family was complete.

Authentically sharing stories and poems from the heart about our experience of being human and our ongoing process of becoming perfectly imperfect. Writing mostly real and raw with a sprinkle of microfiction!
