When I get back in the morning, you need to wake up.'”

“12 years ago, I had my fallopian tubes and ovary removed due to a football-sized tumor. They aren’t tied, they aren’t cut. They are literally GONE. No, I haven’t had any secret IVF. I’ve had no fertility surgery. I didn’t even plan on having more kids! This is the impossible…possible.”

“I had just gotten ‘the phone call’ no parent ever wants to get. I flew out the door, not knowing what happened, how bad it was, or even if my son was alive. Josh had been on his way home from work when a car made a right turn in front of him. It happened so fast. I tried to prepare myself for when I saw him. When he spoke, it wasn’t his voice. ‘Who is he?’ He was only 21 years old. He was in and out of consciousness. I felt nauseous.”

I sobbed as soon as we got home. My daughter comforted me, cried with me.”

It tightly wrapped around my bladder and kidneys, slowly killing me.”
