breastfeeding awareness month

Here is a little taste of what I wrote for National Breastfeeding Awareness Month on Disney Baby, but please head on over to Melanie's page and read the rest:
All the pumping gave me something to do. It gave me a focus and a chance to hope and dream about the possibility that one day I would be back home nursing my baby on the couch with my two year old snuggled up right beside us.

It wasn't about what society thought or conquering something that I hated the first time around. It was about survival. It was about being a mother when I was not allowed to care for my newborn. It was about hope. And triumph.
