Before I was “Mom,” I was me, Kristina. Before the rough first couple of weeks of sleepless newborn momma life, I had my tribe of girls. We used to have girls’ nights or happy hour meet ups often, and those...
My Brother is a Sexual Predator I always knew there was something different about my brother. He was over a decade my senior but always seemed more immature than me. I had a job from a young age, while years...
