One of the first people I ever met in Ft. Collins was Vanessa. She seemed super young to me, who at that point was a mother of two children already. We were supposed to be talking volunteering but talk veered to home birth, a topic that we were both interested in. Six years later, she has two kids and we live down the street but still haven’t really connected further. But when she blogged about the question of honesty, I immediately wanted to respond in a post of my own and connect around the thoughts that tie us together as women and as mothers in the community.
