“why not give your child the chance at the most normal life that you could give them?” -was a lovely comment I got to wake up to this morning. I wonder to myself pretty often, “maybe that’s enough sharing for now?” And then, sure enough, I get a comment like this. I get lots of … Continue reading I am Angry
