I wanted a boy. At the time, I already had one boy, so I knew what to expect. But that was not really the reason.
I know everyone's heart is different and sadly not everyone views my kids the way I do. I love them all equally and I will do everything in my power to make sure they each feel that love and to make sure others in our circle don't make them feel differently.
The next day she arrived. The all too familiar knots in my stomach were there as I waited. But something was different this time.
I know she doesn't need me.
