Au­gust 2018

Chat - - True | My Diary -

On 30 Au­gust 2018, Oliver was born. Sud­denly, it didn’t mat­ter about my own scars, my past, the hor­ror I’d been through. I was a mother. I’d sur­vived ev­ery­thing – the fire, the bul­lies – for my baby. As I held Oliver against my chest, felt the warmth of his body on mine for the first time, I’d never felt love like it. When Joshua scooped him up into his arms, I knew that our lives were com­plete. I’m go­ing to teach Oliver to be brave and to al­ways stand up to bul­lies. And I’m go­ing to keep em­brac­ing my scars, be­cause they’re a part of who I am.
