i have planted my roots, grown and bloomed time and time again only to have met darkness—drying and shriveling up as life inside of my womb has left me.
this time is different; spring is springing.
thank you for choosing us. for continuing to stay. for allowing me to be vulnerable, again. for making a home inside of me. for karate chopping me dailyyyyyy.
i love you, my baby boy. you’re the sweetest thing i’ve ever known and we can’t wait to welcome you earthside in june.
to our closest friends and family—we’re forever grateful for your love and support on this journey. i’ll never find enough words to express my gratitude.
[and no, his name is not lemon! he is just equal parts lemon + carter. hahaha. name TBA.]
