This blog has always been intertwined – it is about Kiran but it is about Kiran through my lens as his mother. It is about my feelings, my thoughts, my fears around Kiran’s diagnoses and prognoses. It’s the ups and downs and twirling-all-arounds.
Saturday, I attended a day-long retreat for Heart Moms. I didn’t know what to expect, but I guarantee I got a whole lot more out of it than I would have guessed. So this blog, now…I’m not sure where it will take me. It will still be about our journey – Kiran and me – but it may swing more toward my experiences in life as his mom and outside of that distinct role. I don’t want to start another blog, so everyone who follows this one eager for updates on Kiran – I promise you will still get them, but there will likely be more writing and more focus on other areas of momhood and personhood and life journeying.
I hope you’ll stick with me. Kiran’s story is a good one and one worth sharing, but I think maybe mine is, too. And I will never be able to fully separate who I have become from his story, because his presence in my life changes me irrevocably every single day.
