The ocean was angry yesterday. I was jetlagged and sleepy. I woke up today to intermittent rain.

It was raining in Florida too, and then the sun came out. That was the trip when I found out I was having you.

I keep waiting for sunshine, for something to tell me life isn’t always blue. I live in shades of blue.

I love you.

Letters to Adrian are real letters from a mother to her stillborn child. Letters are shared here in periodic batches.
