When my mother moved my brother and I to Atlanta in 2001 for her to marry her new husband I was stripped of everything I ever knew. I was 14 and NOT happy. I loved my life in Tampa, loved absolutely everything about it. First year of high school, walking in with no friends and absolutely no idea what was in store for me. I also loved music and finding the right radio stations wasn’t hard. I love rap, pop and R&B and with being in the capital of that genre it was quite easy. I fell into a newish talk-show in the mornings while getting ready for school and in the car ride over… that started an 11 year relationship. I fell in love with the hosts and for the majority of the 11 years in Atlanta the hosts stayed the same. Towards the end the two women on the show moved on to other shows but I keep up with them on Facebook.
One was Melissa Carter who is openly a Lesbian and has always been amazing at sharing her opinions on things from that angle. I just love her. She is honest and true to who she is. She is always insightful and simply a joy to listen to on the radio. I miss all of the original talk-show hosts from my favorite radio station but probably her the most 🙂 I was so excited to read via facebook last week that she and her partner are finally expecting a baby. I remember hearing about their first attempt failing and I was heartbroken for her. She posted an article this morning that she wrote and I just wanted to share! They both had egg retrievals and then have a surrogate carrying the baby. I can’t wait to follow along with her!!
