We have entirely cut out the body from our process of being human. People rarely think about their bodies. And if they do, it’s usually for one of two reasons:One, they’re comparing it usually to some other piece of body somewhere in the world (to which it usually unfavorably stacks up) Or Two, they are […]

Last month was the end of a chapter for me and Ellias, and I didn’t know how to process or talk about it until now. My last day breastfeeding Ellias was at 23.5 months. This image was taken a couple of weeks prior to our last days of nursing and unearths so many emotions in […]

The room was dark, save for the slivers of light from the hallway peeking underneath the heavy curtain.  I heard mouse clicks and the clacking of keyboards in-between the hum of the air conditioner and the sound of my shaky breath.  But otherwise, just silence, and the reverberating of sound from the monitor.  A heartbeat.  […]

The other day, Aimee choked back tears as she confessed to me, “Maman, you and papa spend so much time taking care of Ellias. You don’t take care of me anymore.” My heart split in two to see her in pain: to hear her doubt my love, but I knew that she needed my reassurance […]
