Facing *our* future Head On
You began as a wish I was afraid to whisper.
An alternate reality I wouldn’t consider,
because I didn’t feel ready.
That this world wasn’t ready to honor and protect you.
But you knew better.
Coming from the most high, the most light, the most Love.
Turned my fear into Faith, and now I trust that you are meant to be.
Thank you for choosing me. Us.
We’ll protect and honor you best we can.
I wrote the above passage while pregnant.
Now: going into 2019 pregnant with hopes, goals, ambitions and questions for my career, self-identity and this *new* definition of family.
Here’s to facing it all head on.
