Today I saw this beautiful orchid on sale at Whole Foods, so I named her... well, Orchid. And she came home with me.Orchid has come to symbolize a lot for me. Can I simultaneously care for her and Anna? Can I remember Orchid's needs without sacrificing the needs of my daughter's? Can I love Orchid as much as I love Anna, even though it doesn't feel possible that I could ever love anything as much as I love my AB?Everyone clear where I'm going with this?
Orchid, welcome to the family. No pressure, but your well-being is going to be directly linked to my sanity in the coming months. Do me a favor, will you? Live.
