Parenthood reveals the most expansive, confusing, and shadowy parts of ourselves, to ourselves. You were always just you. And then one day, you were someone entirely new: caregiver, protector, full of love and terror and joy.

Sometimes, this life-changing experience appears in ways that don’t reflect who and who you are.
