Premie Love

My momma taught me at a young age that service was important.  We went to food shelters on holidays and we gave money to the homeless beggars on the side of the road.  Giving back is incredibly important to me, and it is something I am excited to teach the boys.  Since both boys were premies and spent considerable time in the NICU - that became close to our heart.  Elijah was born at 32 weeks with IUGR weighing 1220 grams, and Xavier was born at 35 & 5 weeks and was 5lbs.  Xavier's blood sugar was a 5 at birth and...

My Miracle is Granted

When my mom got sick, I prayed and prayed for a miracle.  People all over the world, prayed for a miracle as well.  It was a feeling that I can't describe.  Sometimes I could feel the prayers and vibes wrapped around me like a blanket.  The feeling was so strong I could almost touch it.  It was very powerful, and I will never forget that feeling.  But the thing about miracles, is that they don't always come how we expect them. So about that miracle.  I finally got it.  Week after week I got to see this baby grow bigger...

Losing a Parent & Losing a Baby

My mom didn't come home from that stay.  Well not as herself anyways.  Just a shell of her came home with us.  It was strange, one day we were laying in her hospital bed together - watching the last Oprah show reminiscing on how much we would miss it.  Really, reminiscing about how much we would miss each other...  I got a call, it was Saturday morning and my stepdad had spent the night at the hospital.  He said, "Erin - your mom is not your mom anymore, you need to get here right away".  Once at the hospital, they told...

Mother's Day

Mother's Day

It was Mother's Day.  A few weeks earlier we learned that the chemo had stopped working, and that the cancer had spread.  We were supposed to go on a family vacation as we had never been on one before.  But my mom was too sick to board the cruise, it wouldn't be safe.  When my husband and I returned a week we learned that she didn't have long.  It was devastating.  So going into Mother's Day, we knew it would be our last.  That stung so bad. I woke up that morning and peed on a stick.  Sure enough, it...
