As I began to embrace my infertility and accept my childlessness, I had to figure out what life was going to look like. If I wasn’t going to be a normal, traditional mom, then who would I be? And what was my Plan B? Since I simply couldn’t accept that I would never be a mom, I walked into year one of accepting my childless life determined to redefine what momhood meant to me as I discovered Plan B . . .
My 2014 Resolution: The Beginning of Plan B
My 2014 New Year’s Resolution included, “Stop trying to convince everyone else that I’m a mom with a kid—Just accept it myself.” This may sound strange since I am an infertile, childless woman. How could I possibly be “a mom with a kid?!” Well, I’m a dog mom with a four-legged kiddo named Maddie. And I decided that meant I was a mom with a kid.
