OH my goodness I LOVE these! Gorgeous mamas and the most precious babies.
Please note, the mamas’ still-expanded-to-accommodate-the-child bellies.
So beautiful. NOT photo-shopped to become “acceptable”. Realistically showing the result of skin being stretched for nine months in order to house a miraculous event…the growing and designing of a child. A real-life human.
I hold that as God’s greatest miracle. And I encourage all new moms to wear their stretched skin proudly. Because, there are many–like me–who cannot claim to have been an essential part of God’s performing a miracle.

These are my stories—my life. I try to write honestly, raw, and from my heart. I try to tell all the parts—the good, the hard, the tough, the hopeful, and the emotional.
But most importantly, I am here to be found by you. I am open-hearted, and I won’t hide.
When I share my story, my words, and my experiences you may see yourself in them.
I make myself vulnerable, hoping that you might learn and heal.
We all need healing. The world can be cruel. Sometimes life can break us.
But there is joy and hope to be found. I pray that I may lead you to the One who can give them to us.
So, who am I?
*I’m an educator at heart–it’s in my blood.
*I’m a highly emotional person–I identify that as “passion”.
*I’m a late-life mom to two amazing and beautiful (adopted) children who have physical, mental, and psychological differences from “typical” children.
*I’ve lived a lot. I’ve learned a lot. And I’ve healed a lot.
I hope you will join me in my quest to live for God, to live fully, and to spread truth!
