Posted by on Dec 9, 2017 in Blog, Divorce Recovery | 0 comments

(A love letter I wish I had read during my divorce which I now dedicate to moms going through and coming out.) Dear Beautiful, You may not believe that there is an end to your pain, confusion, and disappointment, but there is.  The many questions you ask yourself are heard. The agony you feel is acknowledged.
