Lost In A Difficult Transition

Transitions in life are inevitable. Whether welcomed or unwelcomed, expected or unexpected, we all experience changes in life that can leave us feeling overwhelmed.

It cuts deep. Raising children is an incredible responsibility we are entrusted with…but it’s also messy. It takes time, effort, and a great deal of emotional and physical energy. It’s challenging, it’s tough, it’s painful and it’s worth it. Trust me, I know. Brandy and I…

Krista Uranga: A Single Mom’s Story
