Aidan was young – maybe 2 when he ran a finger along one of my stretch marks.

What is this he queried. And I explained that as he grew stronger and bigger within me that my body had to stretch to accommodate his life.

And he looked at me – and if I didn’t already think he was different I knew in this moment…

Aidan: These are beautiful. Do you think they are?

Me: Yes.

The one thing I would never change about my body is the evidence that I carried this beautiful soul into the world.

I cried happy tears that night.

I have so many gifts – one of them is the marks I will live with for the rest of my life.
