“Green And Free” (Nancy’s Blog)

On January 29, 2013, my husband and I received notification that our application for his permanent residency was approved; he’s getting a green card. I am elated, and exhausted. It’s difficult to describe the emotional turmoil that is our country’s legal immigration system. But let me try. My husband – gasp! – overstayed a work […]

“Fetus Fotos” (Nancy’s Blog)

Photos of fetuses gross me out. Don’t get me wrong, nothing was more exciting or precious than that first glimpse at my baby as the sonogram technician pointed out virtually unidentifiable itty bitty body parts.

If you’ve read my previous blogs, you’re familiar with my sorrowful romantic saga: girl meets guy; girl falls in love with guy; girl and guy have a beautiful baby girl; guy gets deported; girl is now a single parent yearning for the home, family and ease of an era passed. And there you go – […]

"It's A Holiday, Not The End Of The World!" (Nancy's Blog)

I was prepared to write a rhetorical rant about the commercialism of Thanksgiving, and how Black Friday “doorbusters” have eclipsed the importance of being with friends and family. After all, it seems you can barely shovel in a slice (or two or three) of pie before it’s time to hit the road like a superstore […]
