This is the moment.

In an hour, I will meet the woman who gave birth to me.  Strangely, I am calm.  Maybe a defense mechanism, detachment, to protect my heart from getting hurt.  But I feel strong.  I am ready for this.

This is me. Right now.  We’ll see what changes in an hour.

  2. Just reading this made me so anxious! I don't know what I would be like in this situation but I think you're so brave.
