Starting this blog was laid on my heart about three years ago following the birth of my sweet Millie Kate. Her birth was like nothing I have ever experienced (more on that later) and has changed my family’s life FOREVER. While going through this experience and still living through my new normal I have had an overwhelming desire to write. I have clearly heard God’s voice telling me to do this and I have ignored Him for quite some time. For fear of failure, it not being perfect, people judging me, upsetting someone, and my most precious moments being on display, I have kept things to myself. This year I have heard God very loudly, with that parental tone of voice, telling me if I don’t do this…(I think I’m going to get it, like his wrath or something.) Okay, okay! I hear you! So here we go.
I want to write for other moms and families that are walking, or have already walked what I have walked. I want to write for my daughter to have a guide if she needs it. I want to write for friends, strangers, family members, and for those that will unfortunately need this support in the future.
I am a dynamic, tenacious, multifaceted person and therefore, I will also write about other areas of my life too.
I hope you feel inspired to stay, read, look around, and donate if you feel led. Part of my journey here is starting a non-profit to help other families that need financial help because of neonatal death. I want to help these families through medical billing negotiation and medical payment grants, so the heartache of losing a baby does not also have to be a financial burden.
