The test had come back negative. She wasn't pregnant. She had hoped she was because of her late period and the metallic taste in mouth which turned out to as a result of the over-the-counter multi-vitamins she was taking. Bitter disappointment had filled her when she saw the one horizontal line on the display of …

Life Changes

Good News, Finally

"I have good news for you, Kira. You're pregnant." Kira sat there looking stunned. Tears welled in her eyes. Finally, she had heard the words she had always longed to hear.

It’s Over

Bundles of Joy
