On Motherhood, Daughterhood, Adoption & Grief

My five-year-old recently told me that when she dies, she’d like to have a grave next to my husband and mine. Of course, this is not a subject I bring up with her except when necessary. Apparently, it was something she’d been contemplating; since she recently visited the grave of one of her very old extended family members here in Serbia it’s customary to visit a loved one’s grave on the anniversary of his or her birth or death, or both, each year.
