I’m Aparna, a single mom, struggling to bring back normalcy in our lives.

The door bell rang…Sia winked…

The guilt in her eyes was replaced by a candid mischief.

“Sorry for the delay. Your pizza is free.”

We smiled…

I transferred the money into our next months savings.

The struggle is real….So is the happiness.
