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.

A star is born!

While at International Delight Night potluck supper at the girls' school, everyone was enjoying the dancer/martial artists from Brazil. Brigid was enjoying it so much that she was trying to do the same thing in the back of the gym. The lead dancer saw her and motioned for her to come up front. Brigid jumped at the chance to dance in front of the whole school. And here is the proof that Brigid is a ham! She just amazes me because as a kid I could have NEVER gotten up in front of the school like she did. Brigid just rocks!!
