Dear Magali Grace, It’s been one year since you greeted us earth-side with your first cry in the operating room. I remember when Dr. Rosengarten lifted you over the curtains at the hospital, I broke down in tears. Going into the OR, I had no idea how I was going to feel and the minute […]

When I first found out I was pregnant with Aliyana, two things filled my Pinterest board – nursery decor and beautiful play spaces filled with every single toy I wish I had when I was little.

We wait and we wait. The moment is here and we finally get to live the dream that we’ve been dreaming. Then we find out about the struggles and the anxiety that come along with this beautiful new role. We have become their protectors and their guiding light. Each day feels like a marathon of […]
