I'm entering the second trimester — my baby is due next May — and this beautiful piece gave me a glimpse of the future. I can hardly wait to meet my baby!

I like how honest you’ve been about being pregnant and having a baby. I know that’s stupid to say but like, I feel everyone just paints everything with a rainbow and you’re just very “nope, here’s how it is, and it’s awesome.”

It’s not for me or my wife, but I’m glad everything went well with you and yours. Beautiful little kiddo.

"I used to daydream about going into the past and changing it. I wanted a family that loved me in the way I needed to be loved. I wanted to hold my arms out without flinching. I wanted to look into the mirror and stop seeing the ghost of a wounded child, smudged charcoal where my heart should have been. I have lost count of the hundreds of hours I cried because I could not go back and reverse time. Now I see that there was another way. Another way to be whole. It was forward."

Love this and feel it to the fullest. Big congrats and much love.
