I was born and raised in Southern California and loved my life growing up as a soccer player and singer. In 1999 I left The O.C. with my family and headed to the South to follow the dream of a Christian Recording Artist. That dream came true, as well as another dream of meeting my husband. We met through our booking agent and 15 years later we are still happily married.
I walked a long road through infertility and heartbreak and the loss of our firstborn daughter, Zoe Renae on Oct. 8, 2004. I was blessed to be called mom again with my daughters Brooklyn and Sydney. We were thrilled to find out we were pregnant again in the summer of 2010. Unfortunately, I delivered my son Jonathan Andrew, stillborn on August 12, 2010. He now plays with his big sister in Heaven.
I started blogging because I was terrible at keeping a scrapbook, that and the fact that it was my husband's idea. He actually signed me up for my Blogger account. I love to write about my girls, health, home organization, homeschool and my faith. Infertility and loss doesn't define me, but it has given me a stronger faith and helped shape me as a wife and mother. My prayer is that the Lord would use my story to help women overcome infertility and loss by giving them, Hope in the Waiting.
