Foxy Wine Pocket is a (sometimes inappropriate and irreverent) humor blog, but I also write serious pieces. Today, I’m honored to be on Mamalode sharing one such story about my journey to become a mother and the complicated feelings surrounding motherhood after infertility. I hope you’ll follow me there. Here’s a snippet:
“One girl and one boy! Aren’t you lucky!” people often declare when they see my children.
“Yes, I am.” I reply simply.
Because I am lucky, and usually people just want that acknowledgement. They don’t want to hear about my experiences with infertility and pregnancy loss, or that I never cared about gender.
My journey to my girl and boy, however, did not feel lucky at the time…
Please read the rest on Mamalode. And maybe share the piece and/or say something nice about me while you’re there?
