      Marina’s  Words :     Resilient     Nurturing     Confident

      Marina’s  Story :

      When I turned the page on the chapter of my life called Single Parent, it was a plot twist I wasn’t expecting.

      The narrative that I had carefully crafted for my future lay in ruins.

      When I tried to skip to the end- “you know, the “happily ever after” part?”      All of the pages were blank.

      It took all of my strength to rewrite each day, trying to figure out how to be a low income, pregnant, single parent without losing myself.

      Turns out, I’m lucky to have had a lot of support.

       All of the women in my life: my phenomenal friends, my inspiring mother, my compassionate prenatal doctors and my exceptional councilor all helped me come to a realization.

      That only I could rewrite my story.

      So I worked every day, carrying forward lessons from the earlier chapters until the plot was clear.

      With love and guidance, I rebuilt my life.

      I bore a daughter, raised a son, built a career, and realized I was enough.
