A Lesson In Losing Kyle

I was a senior in High School when I lost Kyle. I was too young to cope, and he was too young to go. I had never lost anyone… Not an aunt, a grandparent, or a second cousin. No death, no funeral, no loss, had ever prepared me to lose Kyle. I didn’t lose Kyle…

An Open Letter To Young Women With Babies, From Me

Dear, With A Baby I’ve been struggling. I see the pictures you post of your new baby, and I can’t figure out how I feel… or if I’m allowed to feel anything about it at all. You’re so happy, but I’m so happy… that it’s you and not me. If I’m being honest, I’ve been…
