Let me tell you a little about the Father of my three children. When we were trying to start our family and had to go to the fertility doctor, he tried to make it to whatever appointment he could. When we were finally pregnant, he went to every ultrasound to see that baby who never got … Continue reading Father’s Day 2019
For years I have seen swoon-worthy images pop up on social media of mothers with their children. Usually they start to emerge in May around Mother’s Day and then they linger for a while after. Each photo was like a little dagger to my broken heart. May 2015 – My heart was broken from months … Continue reading Mommy and Me
Last year I was able to participate in a rainbow shoot, organized by Danielle Danver Photography, while pregnant with the girls. The photo is absolutely gorgeous! My favorite part is that we are all pregnant in it. All of us were in the thick of pregnancy after loss; the fear, the anxiety, the hope, … Continue reading Rainbow Part 2

It’s Nurses week again. The one week a year where we take the time to appreciate those who help us immensely in our time of need.

On Tuesday we celebrated Asher’s second birthday. It was a bittersweet day, as it will always be. It will always mark the passing of time since I last held my son. Two years is too many to go with a piece of your heart missing and yet, it will only continue to get longer. However, … Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Asher!
It’s February. The month my world irrevocably changed two years ago. We all know my story by now. I’ve said it before and I will continue to say it for the rest of my life, it seems like just yesterday that I held my son and yet also a lifetime ago. When I really sit … Continue reading Two Years
Recently, Hubby and I went to our local market with the little ladies. We wandered around with our coffee and donuts, each wearing a baby. The amount of attention that babies get in public is crazy. Now take that, and multiply it by two! People love twins. As we walk past, we hear “oh there’s … Continue reading Are They Twins?
