“Lationna Halbert doesn’t like pickles. But one day, in July 2022, she was hit with an intense craving as she watched her boss eat one. The only other time she had craved pickles was four years prior, when she was pregnant with her son. When she indulged and ate one, she threw up. Lationna decided to take a pregnancy test just in case. It was positive. ‘I cried, I cried, I cried,’ Lationna says. … At 26, she already had a 4-year-old son, Royalty, tall and skinny with his mom’s coloring and wide eyes.” (05/22/23)
