I am currently a SAHM to boy/girl twins, born June 8, 2009. When I started this blog in 2007 I lamented that I would never be a mother. Having been born with complex congenital heart defects, doctors felt it was much too risky for me to attempt a pregnancy. Add in the fact that I am on medication that can severely effect an unborn fetus and the decision was made. There was no way I would ever carry. However, through the miracle of surrogacy, I now chase around the spitting images of my husband and myself.
The blog started out as a place for me to vent frustrations, record my dreams, and document the journey that took me towards the one thing I wanted more than anything. Motherhood. Now that I am a mother, I use this site as a place to marvel at the amazing changes that take place every day in my children. It has also become a place for me to gather my thoughts about how to be the best mom I can be. Being a SAHM is hard work, and sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m doing the best I can.
I find it fascinating that people read my blog. I write for myself, but I love it when something I say reaches someone else. I am a blog follower myself and know the power of seeing we are not alone.
