Every weekend I participate in David Abrams’s “#SundaySentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

After two previous pregnancies with my Rh positive sisters, my mother’s Rh negative body had developed enough immune sensitization  to read me, her third viable fetus, as a disease to be eradicated, and this confirms everything about our difficult life together, my mother and me, always embattled, always a struggle to get to live, as myself—but that’s for another essay.
