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.

Prayers needed

One prayer request needs many prayers. One is not so pressing.

A wonderful friend of mine was expecting twins. Totally spontaneous. She used to come over and volunteer when the triplets were born and she feels more like family. She gave birth to her boys, Elijah Cole and Hunter William on late Sunday night a week ago. She was only 20 weeks along. She and her husband were able to hold the boys, take pictures, and try to make that very brief time with them last a lifetime in memories. The funeral was private. She is holding up amazingly well. PLEASE pray for her and her husband during this most horrible of times. Sometimes things seem so unfair. I can't hardly bear the thought that they have to go through this. Hopefully with time, they will be able to try again to have more children.

On a MUCH smaller note of request.: I interviewed for a job yesterday morning at a child development center with 120 kids and 20 staff members. It was for a lead teaching position in the 4 year old classroom. An hour after I left they called to set up an appointment for this morning. I assumed I had the job and was coming in to find that out this morning. I was actually asked if I would be more interested in the DIRECTOR'S position!!!!! I have 2 more interviews to go through before I find out definitely but I can hardly believe it!!!!!!! Pray that I get this one. The lead teaching position was more money and with benefits than current but the director's position would be MUCH more money and many more benefits. Please! Please! Please!
