Good morning, Trench Sisters!
“What’s your baby’s name?”
It’s the most beautiful question, and one that never fails to make a bereaved mama’s heart sing. I remember the first time Sara asked me about Maeve. It was on the phone, we had yet to meet, but were speaking about how to best spend the money raised in memory of my little girl, who had died just a few weeks before.
This story is a very personal one, but it's imperative I share my story. Like many women, I felt conflicted about the idea of wanting more. I was trying to win this war that so many of us moms fight every day. What's more important? My career or my family? I know the answer, but honestly, I couldn't help but want BOTH.
