The wonderful Radiance Walker and Caspian (3).
When Radiance learned she was pregnant she wasn't with Caspian's father and when she told him, he chose not to stick around. She had the support of her close family members but being on her own for her pregnancy was difficult and she struggled emotionally. On top of everything else she was coping with, Radiance was robbed at gun point the day of her baby shower.
Radiance gained 60 lbs throughout her pregnancy and has struggled with her body since. She tore badly during her delivery and took months to recover. She says that she hated herself and didn't have a good body image until recently. While, her journey has been difficult Radiance is so grateful she chose to keep her son. Motherhood has changed her in so many positive ways - she is more patient, empathetic, and grounded. She and Caspian have a wonderful breastfeeding relationship to this day and she's working on reframing how she views herself. In the past 6 months she's been focused on finding her worth and harnessing radical self-love.
