It was overcast, and the wind hummed as a Spring storm slowly made its way towards Amherst. It didn't matter that the sun was hiding, because everything was so serene, and Lexi, our then gorgeous-mama-to-be, glowed while effortlessly taking direction in the wildflower fields. Her dress danced in the breeze as she carried a basket of simple, yet beautifully arranged florals. The mountains stood tall in the distance - past the vast, open fields - a seeming parallel to the larger-than-life experience that is pregnancy.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Debbie for nearly two years now. Debbie is an incredible occupational therapist who successfully runs her own private practice (#thetherapistdream). I remember when I first met her - I was so intimidated by her professionalism and expansive knowledge of neuroscience. I would listen to her problem-solve with teachers and counsel parents with a conviction that, as a newer therapist, I have always struggled with, and think... "Will I ever be this confident?"
