I am 42 years old and separated from J after nearly 10 years of marriage. We had been trying to have a baby for more than 6 years. Through years of fertility treatments and pregnancy loss our journey had been way too long and I had lost nearly all hope that it would end happily.
That hope grew again as each day of our twin pregnancy passed and on August 25th, 2008 our world was forever changed. Not long after our boys were born I found myself a single parent. Even though single parenthood with twins is damn hard I wouldn't change it for the world. Now, nearly two years after separating from J, I'm dipping my toe back in the dating pool.
