July 24th 2017 was my due date. But I know he would have been born today, actually right about now. As I was putting the kids to bed I had insane cramping, but my period wasn't supposed to be here for another three...

Friends,

You post something controversial on your wall and frantically wait idly by your phone to see who is going to support your message or who is going to spit fire at you. I know the feeling all too well.  I am often asked how I keep my confidence and heart when fac...
