Rewind to the fall of 2008, I was preparing to enter into what I thought was my final year of college. I was living with a roommate in an apartment and commuting to school, while working full time. My life was on track, and as far as school goes, I could see the finish line. Just as the semester was to begin, to my surprise, I found out I was pregnant. It's really hard for me to explain this part of my life, because what happened was life. I can't say I messed up, because my daughter is not a mistake. At the time, I thought my world was ending, but now I know it was only beginning. I may not be Director of HR in a major corporation, but that doesn't mean I have failed. I have been given a position of much greater value; to be the mother of Molly.
Remembering this time in my life brings back a lot of emotions. I was very alone. Family and friends seemed to take a giant step back. I felt like pregnancy was a contagious disease and I began to isolate myself. If it hadn't been for Marshal, I would have not been able to get through. My husband has been there since day one. We were intended for one another...just a little sooner than we had planned.
Fast forward to today, we are more in love than ever. After the pregnancy, wedding, and relocating, our life together has finally slowed. Thus, I have to ask the question; what next?
