  1. I am staying for the bright and bold bits of life that people are brave enough to share. I am here to laugh, cry, cringe and binge on some life in general. I also wouldn’t mind becoming a kink Jedi.
    Sina, thank you for instructions on how to use the force.
    Mariah, you are awesome. You should call him Hunter when he grows up. Call it a nickname. XD

  2. Mariah,

    That was truly a beautiful, heart wrenching story. Thank you for sharing, and making me sob messily while I work 3rd shift. Luckily everyone has the flu or a cold now so I am assumed sick & contagious, and people kept their distance.

    You are so strong and self-less, and a wonderful mother. It takes a truly strong woman to give her child the best life she can, especially when she knows that it won’t be with her.

  3. Thank you SO MUCH, Mariah, for sharing your experiences and your insight! That was a beautiful story (or many beautiful stories, really) well told.
    It was my mistake to have listened at work, but I’m glad I listened.

  4. Mariah, I sobbed, too. As a mom of two, it was a visceral experience to listen to— what a beautiful story.
