He Wants to Get Me Pregnant…at 53.

Our minds write incredible stories to resolve grief.

Me pregnant, 10 years ago, with my youngest daughter.

He wants to coach me through the unmedicated birth of our baby and marvel at the blending of our genetic code into a tiny little bundle of blue-eyed stardust and creative potential.

And he wants to have done it 20 years ago — not now.

Mama, writer, lover, fighter — I wear my heart on my sleeve because my pants pockets are too small. www.ajkaywriter.com
