Before there was you… (Lilola)

Mom with PTSD (Kara)

I always wanted to be a mom. I didn't dream of weddings or anything else as a young girl. I was lucky enough to meet my husband in the most amazing of places: while we were in training with the navy. Before we were even engaged we talked about how many kids we would have. [...]
