In July, I had a baby boy named Shepard. It was a long, difficult journey to become his mom, so this first Mother's Day feels like a huge milestone for me. If you're struggling to become a mother, if you're having a hard time being the mom you want to be, if you have a tricky relationship with your own mama, I feel you. I hope you find some joy and peace on Mother's Day. Celebrate what you've got. FAMILIES ARE COMPLICATED.
