Motherhood

Motherhood: a struggle at every stage. For several years I was asked when I was going to have children.  The assumption slowly turned to never.  For me, it was a personal decision I wasn’t prepared to make, nor did I think I should have to.  At 20; 25; 28; 30 even.  Children are a lifelong […]
