knowing you are going to give birth soon and waiting for it to happen is like when you’ve just eaten a lot of acid and you know something very powerful and life changing is about to happen and there is nothing you can do to stop it. And it’s not that you really want to stop it, but you know it’s probably going to be a little bit scary at certain points but at the same time incredibly beautiful. and you just keep asking yourself “am i ready for this?”

Homestead Memories Part 1.
Our time homesteading off grid was our biggest adventure yet. We moved to 7 acres of raw land (no road, no utilities) and created a little sanctuary in the woods. My husband built us a tiny home treehouse, we heated with wood we chopped ourselves and attempted our first garden. It flooded unfortunately but we learned something about ourselves with every mistake. We lived more closely with nature than we probably ever will again and learned how a simple life, while not easy, is truly a good life.
Unlike the beautiful 6-year old Jonbenett Ramsey who received coverage all over the media - every tabloid, newspaper, news channel, talk show, 7-year old Aiyana Stanley was killed by a police officer during a raid while she was sleep and her murder received very little coverage.
Police, searching for a murder suspect, threw a flash grenade through the window of her family’s apartment around midnight. According to Aiyana’s father, it landed on the couch, setting Aiyana on fire. A police officer’s gun then went off, and shot Aiyana in the neck.
Aiyana was asleep on the living room sofa in her family’s apartment when Detroit police, searching for a homicide suspect, burst in and an officer’s gun went off, fatally striking the girl in the neck, family members said.
Her father, 25-year-old Charles Jones, told The Detroit News he had just gone to bed early Sunday after covering his daughter with her favorite blanket when he heard a flash grenade followed by a gunshot. When he rushed into the living room, he said, police forced him to lie on the ground, with his face in his daughter’s blood.
“I’ll never be the same. That’s my only daughter,” Jones told.
We haven’t forgotten about you baby. R.I.P.
We haven’t forgotten.
