‘It was positive. I was terrified. I started shaking and then crying.’: Woman overcomes years of infertility to conceive beautiful baby boy

“I spent the next two years convincing myself I didn’t want a baby anymore. I became obsessed with puppies to fill the void. I had to pet and hug every dog I saw. I looked at puppies on the internet at work. I needed a puppy. The day after I brought our new puppy home, I realized I was late again for my period. I mentioned it to my husband and he replied, ‘You’re always late.’”

‘Every evening, I see the same tired woman waiting to cross the street with her 4 kids. She holds onto the ones she can, and they hold onto the ones she can’t. I’m fascinated by this woman and her tribe.’

“Even though I need to get myself home to my own four babes, often I’ll wait, not pulling out of the parking lot until they’ve safely made it across. If I didn’t, I would lay in bed at night and worry: Had they made it? Were they still waiting? Were they safe?”
