my thing was that i was an orthodontial nightmare. really, my teeth were crazy. i had several oral surgeries and years of braces, some teasing from kids, my share of misery, and then it ended and i went on to rule the world in my own way. i've wooed plenty of boys. so i know how these things go, and i think i'll be a good coach.
you're an amazing mom yourself, wanting your baby so much that no dad is no obstacle. we all have our imperfect things, and our couldn't-live-without things, and sometimes the two shall intertwine.
somehow, it all works out in the end.
