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.

My new van

Here it is. My new van. It took almost 3 hours of paperwork at Carmax and a monthly payment I want to throw up about but here it is. The gratitude I feel in my heart for all those kind souls who were willing to help out is overwhelming. I can't begin to thank everyone enough. I have told everyone I meet about the kindness of family, friends, and strangers alike. It may have only been $10 but to this family your donations meant everything. I can't wait until the girls are back from their Dad's on Tuesday to show them our new van. Now if there is ever anything I can do for anyone, just ask. I am forever greatful to everyone. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Love and God Bless,
