“My husband spent months telling me I was just hallucinating, that I was crazy. I’d run out to his car as he was leaving for work. Something felt very wrong. I later found out, I wasn’t crazy. Detectives shut the door after telling me of his death. I was humiliated I found out the truth the same night everyone else did.”
“I felt like I was not giving my children the life they should have. In that moment, I felt trapped. So, my husband went into our bedroom and found the loose change that he had been collecting for a few years.”
“I think that’s all my husband thought I had planned, but little did he know!”
“I gave him the coy smile, in an attempt to be sexy. I probably tried to wink at him, and did my best to slither over to the bed. One long stride in front of the other, knocking my hips from left to right, hoping to look like Marilyn Monroe but most likely – didn’t. He slowly sat down next to me.”
“I never had the perfect daddy figure in my life! But I can honestly say I broke that cycle with my child.”
“There was a discussion about it at dinner that night. He was so upset about what happened he asked if he could do something for her.”
“I remember laying there scared to death just ready to see a baby. Well let me tell you… I did not just see a baby. Didn’t just see two babies. Not even three.”
Dad’s DIY gift for the win!
“He told me that he can’t wait for Valentines Day. When I asked why, he told me that he’s going to buy $100 worth of roses and give them out.”
With having a moderate case of progeria and knowing I aged faster, I was terrified I would never find someone to love me for who I was.
