As a mom to twins I continuously struggle with the idea of being fair to both of them – not just being fair which I am by default, but also reassuring them that I do not prefer one over the other. I cannot even begin to imagine what it would be like for you, what emotions you would be feeling and how that statement would have hurt – the one about ‘You don’t know my heart’. I loved how you went back to her and listened to her heart. That’s a lesson I’ll keep for myself. Reply Tulika, Thank you so much. This was a hard essay to write. Reply Thank you for your heartfelt words. I have never been able to say them, but I feel them. I have two boys born to me, and then we adopted our precious girl. They are now in their 30s and 40s, but I still hear the words they used to say. Reply 🙏🏽🙏🏽 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
