“We’re Not BROKEN Just BENT”
Another New Year!
Eleven New Year’s have come since Riley’s traumatic birth.
Our milestones have been small: a calm night, a meal held down, a handhold, an echo’d sound, a managed toy, a smile…
This New Year the milestones must be for Riley’s parents to live life to the fullest. To remember to live for ourselves and not Riley alone. To accept our trauma and to move on from those events.
Yes, I have felt broken! I no longer want to be broken; perhaps we are just “bent. There is life beyond our trauma’s for myself, my husband, my healthy child and even for Riley. We can LEARN TO LOVE AGAIN.
