Come on in!

I'm so glad you have come across my little nook in the cyber world. Here I strive to be real and inspire. I talk about my walk in faith as a Christian, motherhood, the loss of my child, and anything else that crosses my mind. Join me for a minute and relax?

I Am Strong

I am STRONG because at 19 years old, I gave birth to my first daughter, Emma. She cried but one time and stared into my eyes while I held her. 

I am STRONG because I gave up college for that moment in time for the life I was meant to have.

I am STRONG because at 23 years of, my daughter was diagnosed with an eating disorder and Pica.

I am STRONG because at 25 years old, I became pregnant with my second daughter, Dakota. She was born May 27, 2013 and didn't make a sound. 

I am STRONG because on June 1, 2013, I buried my child, and I had never thought I would bury a child, but that my child would bury me.

I am STRONG because we didn't get to bring Dakota home. At 40 weeks 5 days, my daughter's heart stopped beating for an unknown reason.  

I am STRONG because I turned to God in my painful time and managed to continue with my life.

I am STRONG because even after our loss, we managed to try to conceive again.

I am STRONG because I have faith in God and he blessed us with our Rainbow baby.

I am STRONG because although you see me parent with 1 child and expecting another, I’m actually a mother of 3.

I am STRONG because pregnancy after a loss is tough and I AM making it!

I am STRONG because I am a SURVIVOR!!!


  1. You have lived through so many difficult things and have become even stronger because of them. Everything life throws at us makes us who we are. The good, the bad, the unthinkable, it all shapes us into who we are meant to be. I want to say I wish you all the best, but I know that you will fight your way to it, no matter what! xoxox

  2. OMG I love this!!!! You really are a strong woman, and I applaud you for being that way. I am so glad I have gotten to know you through your writing and on facebook.

  3. I absolutely love this and you are right. Your are one of the strongest I have ever met. I love you!!

  4. You are amazing and inspirational. So strong ... we all complain about our lot in life (it seems to be how we humans are made) but a few of us rise above that. I'm so proud to know you - you have given me strength in my own situations (NOTHING like yours, but your strength has helped me cope too, if that makes sense). STAY STRONG!

  5. This is beautifully written and I agree that you definitely are a survivor. I'm so proud of you and it's beyond words. I don't believe for one moment that I would have the strength to go through what you have. There's no way I could do it. Then to be here for you is one thing I can do. You're an inspiration to many and you're an amazing woman/mother.

  6. I love this :) As I said earlier, you are strong :')

  7. We are strong!! Good for you. :-)

  8. You truly are a strong woman. Your family has been through so much, but you tell your story to help others over come something that most couldn't imagine. Your a blessing to us all.

  9. You are so young to have gone through so much. It's really neat how you can share with others to help them too. I hope I can get to that point, to be able to share, so I can help others too.
