Suddenly a low growl like a crocodile permeated the room. Within a minute, I could no longer see my sweet 3-year-old, Tristina’s, blonde curls bobbing anywhere nearby. Panic seized my husband and I at the same time. The circular building forced him one way and I the other. She was nowhere to be found. I raced out the

You know that pit that forms in your stomach when you’ve made a mistake?


When I was a child, I loved to help my mom carry groceries from the car into the house. I do not know what it was about the weekly process that was so enjoyable to me, but I remember it made me happy. One day I grabbed a gallon of milk that was too big for me to handle at the time. I remember the “You probably shouldn’t try that” look on my mom’s face. Just as I began to skip to the porch, proving my strength, the milk slipped from my hands onto the asphalt, breaking open and leaving a white trail. What

The letter had arrived. I had been waiting for weeks and finally, there it was! With my breath half-held, I ripped open the back, unfolded the paper, and began to speedread the words, rushing to reach the point of the letter.


Denied. My sweet Taylor’s special needs bathtub insert had been denied by the insurance company. Showering her had become somewhat of an Olympic feat, trying to wash her well and hold her up at the same time. Though she could no longer sit up alone on the shower chair, someone felt she didn’t meet the proper criteria.


Time seemed to stand still for a moment as discouragement poured over my heart and mind. Why did life with a

A few seconds seemed like an eternity as I tapped my fingers on the bathroom counter. Would the line be a plus or minus? Waiting on a few seconds for the pregnancy test results seemed like an eternity. But there it was. Yes, my instinct was right, and I was pregnant for the third time in four years. I knew that I should be happy and oh, I was! I love babies. Babies are wonderful! But there was also a part of me that felt overwhelmed instead of overjoyed. Guilty instead of glad.
