I’m so glad I found this piece today. I’m an (adoptive) mom and I too spent plenty of time begging the stork for a baby. So I feel guilt when I catch myself some days not wanting to be mommy anymore — it feels shameful after all we went through. Thank you for writing this piece. It helps to know I’m not the only one who feels this way.

Mommy. Wife. Writer. Lunatic. My debut poetry collection, “The Weight of Need”, is available on Amazon.
