My Mother Shape is Beautiful (Melissa Ann)

January 25, 2011

My life has been so enriched by my identical twin daughters, but my body… for a long time I thought it had fallen to shreds. Yesterday I challenged myself to find the beauty in the way I’ve been stretched. This photo is my result.

    Congratulations on your girls! I have identical twins, too, but they’re my middle children.

    Beautiful photo…it took me a while to figure it out, but now that I see the angle that you’re showing, I can absolutely relate.

    xo!

    Beautiful. I’m 6 weeks post partum with twin boys, and have been struggling with all the changes that have taken place with my body. I hope I can get to a place where I am comfortable and able to embrace my new shape.

    they are flush with your skin and beautiful. i love the texture that stretchmarks have, especially on lighter skin like yours.
