On the anniversary of Loving Vs. Virginia, I am thankful. I am grateful that my country’s justice system recognizes people of different race and accepts interracial couples. Couples that find strength in each other’s differences and learn from each other is a magnificent thing. If this weren’t the case, I am not sure I would have a chance at existence; many people probably could relate. … Continue reading Melting Pot Babies
I’ve written about this before, but still think about it often: how crazy it is to be so absolutely happy, but have this terrible sadness at the same time.

In order to start fresh and be fair to everyone and everything in my new world…I need to first say goodbye to what had been my world for a huge chunk of my life.
