When my husband and I were desperately trying to have a baby, I kept wishing I would just happen upon a baby. Therefore, I Want a Dumpster Baby was born. All babies are precious and worthy of so much love! I'm a grateful drunk who doesn't drink, a smoker who doesn't smoke and a mom of boy/girl twins from IVF. I'm grateful for the good the bad and the ugly. It's great to be alive!
An interesting photographic view of Chicago's people, places and things!
