• I Am Strong – Because of Hudson

    I am strong, because I was told I would never have children. I am strong, because I have Endometriosis, PCOS, and Lupus. I am strong, because in 2013 I became pregnant.

  • Finding Healing in a C-Section

    My story really begins with my first two babies’ births. When I was about 37 weeks, we found out our first little girl was breech.

    This is the story of the second time I gave birth; the first time I gave birth naturally. Looking back, I don’t know whether to describe my labor as long or short. Hope Noel was born early on Sunday morning, December 16, 2012. I started having contractions the Wednesday evening before. They were fairly regular for several hours, but fizzled…

  • I’m Not Sorry

    This week, the twins turn three months old. It’s crazy…time has truly flown by! We are amazed every day at their progress, thankful for their sleeping habit improvements, and amazed that these little miracles are ours.
