“I grabbed two waters. The lady in front of me turned around, hands on hips, and told me I was enabling that ‘homeless person’ (with a sneer) and I shouldn’t be wasting my money on him. She proceeded to tell me I should be ashamed, that it should be illegal to beg for money and illegal to give money. I may have inadvertently started a revolution in the convenience store today.”

“I thought about abortion. But one day, scrolling through Facebook, I saw a post from a childhood neighbor. She had a friend who, with her wife, were looking to adopt. People judged me. ‘Even though you hate the father, don’t hate the baby.’ I knew exactly what it felt like to want a baby more than anything and not be able to have one. It was my time to help.”
