Pregnancy. A time of joy, excitement and anticipation in meeting your little one.
Although an empty void does carry along with me on this journey. The void of being parentless. A bittersweet voyage ahead, where the footsteps of my parents no longer walk beside me in this vast path of life.
As happiness elates me most of the time, the thoughts and dreams of sharing this next chapter of my life with my Mum and Dad is vapour. Slipping through my fingers. Attempting to catch the uncatchable.
The joy and love my parents surrounded me with. I can only hope, I can surround this little wonder growing inside me with the same love and joy.
