Recently Kristen Tea, a writer and mom I greatly admire, wrote an article for Mother Wise called You’re Not A Single Mom Unless You’re a Single Mom, and I really agreed with and loved it. I have been highly offended many times in the past to hear happily married women in dual income households or households where one parent is able to stay home refer to themselves as single moms.
As many of you know, today hundreds of thousands of people across the world (over 300,000 in New York City alone) gathered to demand action on climate change. It was a huge moment in history, and will be a serious turning point for climate conversations in the future. Here in Denver, nothing was planned. So I planned something.
I’m sure everyone has heard of the People’s Climate March taking place in New York City September 21st, and for a brief moment in time, I thought I would be able to attend it. That would have been a dream come true for me, but unfortunately, due to some medical appointments I have to keep having to do with the surrogacy, I am unable to attend.
