I had never even been inside a children's hospital until he was first diagnosed. I had never known anyone who had a kid with a chronic illness. I was a new mom and already overwhelmed by the newsletters, the mommy group chats, and all the parenting advice from all the others who had done it all flawlessly before me. Here[...]

Top Summer Reads to Hide on Your E-Reader

  Summer’s here: The kids are home from school, the weather is hot, and the days are long, as Katie Sluiter predicted. And that means it’s time to indulge in a little romance. What?
