Say hi at my new blog and talk about having more kids (or not)!
Posted Sep 05 2012 9:40am
Hey Survivor Mamas and friends,
Can you believe that my baby boy, L1, is about to turn 5? Neither can I. That means I've been blogging here for more than four years. It's been four wonderful years of healing, sharing, supporting one another, and offering hope. And I have no plans of stopping anytime soon.
But, I had been feeling the call recently to expand what I am doing locally beyond the postpartum support group and bit of volunteer work I do with Project Healthy Moms (of MHA of GA). I feel like there is so much that moms, ALL MOMS, need to be confident and well-supported as they care for their families. I hear from so many moms who live right here in Atlanta, a city of nearly 6 million people, and yet feel all alone. It's not right and it's not fair. And? I plan to change that, at least a little.
So, meet my new blog, Atlanta Mom ! It's my newest baby, and ironically today I've posted about my challenge in accepting that I'm done having babies (of the human variety anyway). In today's post I have opened up (perhaps even about a few things I had left unsaid here) regarding my decision to have L2, my depression during my pregnancy with him and the bit of gender disappointment I (gulp) experienced for a while, as well as how I feel so unsettled about being done having kids. I know some of you have insights to share about truly knowing you are finished with the baby making business. And, I also know that I can't be alone in this gray area of wondering what if.
So, C'mon over to the new site...and please comment and share!
