When I was pregnant with my daughter, I learned that someone had stolen my photos. They downloaded my weekly belly profile shots and posted them to a social networking site as their own. Think about that: my self-portraits. My belly, my baby, my pregnancy that followed the death of my son. It was not only wrong and intrusive, but incredibly violating. I was sharing our story in good faith, and someone sought to take advantage of it.

This should be obvious, but now it's out in the universe for all to see:
