Today I realized that I do not have any recent, amazing images of my own mother. The mother who has always been there for me, during every stage of my life.

(or, in the last year, who made time to play babysitter over zoom when I needed it most!)read more

I was so thrilled to hear to hear from Saachi’s parents that they were welcoming another baby.
