I woke up one morning, realizing that my ectopic pregnancy and abortion almost killed me. To say this out loud to shout it out to give it space. Makes me realize that it was the best situation that I could’ve ever imagined. I was 20 weeks pregnant with my partner of 20 years. I thought for sure motherhood was my next path in life. Now 10 years later, I gave myself the time to heal and love who I have become. The traumas and abuse as a child was my journey towards motherhood. 10 years of therapy, 10 years of higher education, 10 years of professional development and 10 years of creating a partnership full of love, honesty and compassion.
