Rainbows & Unicorns – Guest Post
I was asked to write a piece for the new blog – Rainbows & Unicorns. A blog dedicated to parenting after pregnancy loss and infertility.
But, then rather quickly, I moved onto, really me and a parenting after loss blog? I hadn’t thought of myself as being part of the real parenting club yet. Do I really belong there? Yes, I’m living after pregnancy loss. But I’m not parenting, we are just waiting on our adoption, that’s not the same. Our nursery is missing the most important part, a baby. I still do not get to give our child love and kisses constantly. And, I still do not have to balance my needs for a bathroom break with that of a screaming infant while not having slept in what feels like a month.
So, I tentatively accepted the request. And then I proceeded to take a very long time trying to figure out what to write. And eventually, once I followed my heart and wrote exactly what I was thinking, I came up with something.
The editors decided to publish it today. I’m honoured to be part of this new initiative and I look forward to the day that I no longer feel like an impostor. And I promise, if they invite me back, I’ll write again once my arms are filled with baby snuggles!
