A single mother's candid story of reconciling
a life unexpected and navigating the messy in-between


Strong Girl, Brave Girl by Kelsey Baldwin –

I wondered when Ashton Kutcher was going to jump out, because surely I was being punked. I was happily married at breakfast, but by dinner time I was trying to wrap my head around the from-left-field Divorce Talk while staring at a positive pregnancy test. This had to be a really, really bad dream.

Unfortunately, it wasn't a dream. And it certainly wasn't the dream I had for my life, my marriage, or the birth of my first child. I used to think that my story shouldn't be shared until it was tied up with a nice bow, the hardest parts glossed over with time. But then I realized how important it is to write in the middle of your mess — that's the part of the story most people find themselves in anyway.

My first book, Strong Girl, Brave Girl, will be released in October 2018 and shares my candid story of becoming a mom while going through a divorce, how I've reconciled a life that was completely unexpected, and my laugh-when-you-should-probably-be-crying way of navigating the messy middle stages of life.
