I’ve watched 2 episodes of the new Acorn TV series “The Nest.” The show is about a married couple, Dan and Emily, unable to conceive.
Seemingly out of nowhere, with their last chance for a baby, their miracle appears. Kia is a teenage who offers to be their surrogate.
What They Know About The Surrogate:
All they know is that the girl grew up in the system. But they don’t know anything else about her. And what they don’t know is that she is dangerous with a horrifying past.
Then Dan stumbles upon the truth about the girl carrying their baby. But what will he do with that knowledge? Will he tell his wife, Emily?
The show is fast paced and keeps you guessing. I’m anxious to see how this all pans out.
What Book I’m Reading:
I’m currently reading “Invisible As Air” by Zoe Fishman.
The book deals with a family, Sylvie, Paul and son Teddy. Delilah was a surprise baby, as Sylvie was already in her forties. Tragically the baby dies just before birth.
Sylvie is still so miserable after the 3 year anniversary that she finds herself taking one of her husband’s pain pills. Paul has a broken ankle but is not taking the prescribed narcotics.
Just one, she tells herself. But she finds that she can’t stop, as is often the case.
In 2020 Oxycodone addiction is on the rise. With the coronavirus exploding in the US, addiction has become even worse.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found nearly 40 Americans die per day from overdoses of painkillers. About 15,000 people die per year from overdoses of painkillers such as Vicodin and OxyContin.
This eclipses the number of deaths caused by heroin and cocaine combined.
As of today, Covid-19 in the US is nearing 192,000 deaths. A sad and breathtaking number and getting higher by the day.
