About

family

I am blessed with a great husband. Joe and I married on a beach in Jamaica on April 9, 2008. After a few years we tried to expand our family. After about three years of “trying”, we found out I was carrying Zoey. A short time into the pregnancy she was diagnosed with Trisomy 18. It would limit her life. We were blessed to officially meet her on May 1, 2014. She spent 3 months and 27 days with us.

During my pregnancy and her life, I kept everyone up to date through Caring Bridge. After we lost her, I thought it was time to move on but still wanted to write. It’s very therapeutic for me. I made my way to the blog world and we’ll see what happens.

The writing helps me, but I also hope it helps someone else. Maybe another mom won’t feel so alone. Or so crazy. Because this whole grief thing is a strange world and will definitely make you question your sanity. I feel like this is what I need to do.

More than anything I want to honor and remember the life of my beautiful daughter and keep my family strong.

  2. I had no clue about any of this until I was trolling your fb page today. I just read all of your blogs. You have an incredible way with words. My heart bleeds for you. I have a 9 yr old daughter and I just cannot even allow my mind to entertain the devastating notion of how I would go on if ever I kost her. You are an inspirational mother and person. Best to you and yours always Dawn.
