Sad

‘My husband threw his cuff links across the room and said, ‘I want an annulment.’ I spent the first night as his wife alone on a hard hotel couch.’: Ex-couple join forces to co-parent after divorce

“Weeks from our wedding I was told, ‘You have cancer.’ He arrived at the hospital reeking of perfume. ‘I found someone. I’m in love. She’s pregnant.’ He left our fairytale for the woman I sat next to at his company dinner. She’d just rubbed my pregnant belly.”

‘Walking into the house, I said to the baby, ‘We are home!’ It felt cruel. These words aren’t true. This is her home now, but it’s only temporary.’: Foster mom urges ‘I am not a superhero, they are’

“I see families torn apart, siblings separated. Children abandoned, biological parents unable to conquer addictions. People say, ‘I couldn’t foster. I’d never be able to let them go!’ It will be sad. We will grieve. In the end, I will be okay. But will they?”

‘You won’t live past 15 years old.’ I never stopped believing in myself.’: Man with cystic fibrosis urges ‘don’t take your time on this earth for granted’

“I’ve sat in my bed asking, ‘Why God? Why can’t I breathe like everyone else?’ I’ve wondered if I should even try to build a career, friendships, or have love in my life because I’m going to die. Then I realized I will never be able to control the cards I’ve been dealt, but I can make the decision to never stop pursuing my dreams.”
