My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

And Finally Some Good News!!

Yea! It's nice to post something positive. Are you ready?......I got a job!! I will be teaching preschool at a new center that is just opening up. I start on Mon. The girls get to come with me too! They are so excited about getting to start school. I will be broke as always but now I will be broke with bills getting paid first! The girls were high-fiving me today when they found out. I will start out teaching two year olds and when the center gets more kids then I will be teaching 4 year olds. Lets all keep our fingers crossed that this job stays with us for awhile. Now I just need to find a place to live. We are working on that daily.

Thank you God for prayers answered!!
