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 quintuplet Mom and Dad

I received a FB email last week about a Mom in the hospital expecting quintuplets!  She and her husband already have 3 children and the quints were quite a surprise.  I wanted to put a link here in the hopes that anyone (especially in town) might be willing to help out.  I know she has said they are not looking for monetary help but surely any help would be appreciated.  She is going to need lots of people help once those babies come, especially with feeding.  Her three older siblings are going to need some attention too!!!  Here's the link to the newspaper article written about them.  Christy is in the hospital at almost 24 weeks along and will be there until her little ones are born.  Lots of prayers are needed!!!!
