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.

St. Matthews Child Development Center

So here's some good news I haven't mentioned:  I am the new pre-kindergarten teacher at my preschool!!!  I am so looking forward to it.  Right now the school is starting a major remodelling of the pre-K classroom.  It already has a computer lab in it along with a wall-mounted, flat screen TV.  Now they are redoing the paint, floors, etc.  I know it will look spectacular when it is completed.  The room will me home to Nugget the bunny, Oliver and Precious the guinea pig, and two hermit crabs.  I love that the students get to interact with the animals on a daily basis.  We are putting together a new curriculum.  It's going to be wonderful!  Interested?  Here is the link for our website:  St. Matthews Child Development Center
