  • June is Hard

    I know my posts are few and far between now, I apologize. I wish I made the time to write for myself more, but the truth is there are so many other areas in life and people that need my attention in this season of life! In the weeks of blogging silence, many good things […]

  • They Need a Name

    For the most part I feel peace about the miscarriage I experienced back in 2009, as do I about my adoption experience. I felt and saw the hand of God during those times and that only strengthened my faith and brought me the peace I needed, and still need, about those hard times. But some […]

  • The Great 2010

    I am in awe that today is the last day of 2010, and it honestly brings a little sadness to see this year end because it easily has been the best year ever in my life. To kick of the new year we bought our first house and learned a lot on the way. Savannah turned 3 in February and a few […]

  • The Midwife Experience

    Jaxson’s pregnancy was different in so many ways, not just because he was a boy and I felt physically different than with Anna and Savannah, but because of the care I chose during pregnancy. After two pregnancies with OBGYNs, two hospital births, two pitocin inductions, and two episiotomies I wanted something different. Not just in how I envisioned […]

  • Poem: My Twin And I

    This last semester of college (woo hoo!) I wanted to take a fun writing class, not just writing the typical papers (which…I need to be doing right now. Shh…).  I wanted something specifically about writing fiction or novels since that’s what I would like to do later on in life, but you know we don’t […]

  • I Can Only Control Me

    As you probably gathered from my post yesterday, I’m freaking out a tiny bit. Fear of another miscarriage has a tight hold on me, to the point that it has been hard to even trust the same God that has helped me through so much in my short 22 years of life.  The problem is […]

  • A House Warming Gift

    Apparently God wanted to give us yet another blessing. I call it a house warming gift. I think a new baby and nursery will look lovely in our 3rd bedroom, don’t you? While I am so excited, I am probably more completely scared to pieces of a repeat of last year.  Like, to the point of a small […]

  • Remembering Our Other Children

    Being a young mommy and birthmother often dominate the discussion on this blog now-a-days and my daily life in general, however, that doesn’t mean I forget the two we lost this past May/June in early pregnancy.  As the months have flown by (it’s already been 4 since the D&E), giving me not just time to distance myself but […]
