River if I could send an audience to your house to give
you a standing ovation.. I'd do it right now.
As a mother of 25 yrs.. and 3
boys total I applaud you wholeheartedly for approaching this sensitive and
emotional topic. You gave us honesty and realism. You didn't cover it up or
lower the facts to be more palatable or romantic. What you gave the reader was
the truth that even the beautiful things in life aren't always shining bright
and full of sweetness. No the truly meaningful gifts are the ones that leave
battle scars on our bodies our hearts and our minds.
From someone who was
living through post partum depression at age 16 and survived.. you did this
story justice in every way. Nix was so amazing and rough and even flawed but
real..Kadence was a warrior who fought her way back. I adored every moment even
when it hurt. One hundred percent beauty.. even in the pain. Bravo.
