Just Breathe

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Infertility, Kids, Transition | 0 comments

So I’ve been in love with this song Breathe before it hit the airwaves in 2015. This song holds so much meaning in my life with two little ones. Many families have navigated two kids 15 months apart, but this was not what I envisioned in my head as a family. When we were going through infertility, we thought for sure our kids would be at least two years apart given the hurdles to get them here. Surprise when Madelyn showed up, but that’s a blog post for another time. What struck me about this song, outside of the fact that Jonny is a wonderful song writer, is the tempo and crescendo...

Our three year journey which taught us to hope

Posted by on Aug 6, 2015 in Book, Infertility, Kids | 0 comments

This week marks the three year journey of having children. Since the beginning of August, 2012, I’ve been pregnant, miscarrying or having children. What a journey! Below is excerpt from my upcoming book which will finally be done in August. Only fitting, huh? Enjoy! Entering into a Season of Hope As we moved onward from the third pregnancy, we entered a new season of hope. We knew we had to start enjoying the life God had given us, and to find joy in the little moments. Joy, as a fruit of the Spirit, is the one I’ve struggled with the most, and also the one I’ve understood the most. Because...

Commit Your Plans

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were thrown a huge curveball. We found out I was nine weeks pregnant and didn’t know. It has been a whirlwind of crazy thoughts, pure exhaustion and asking questions like ‘how did this happen?’ After we found out, this verse was put in front of me Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” I’ve been dwelling on it ever since because I had not committed one single thing to the Lord and had just planned my life. We had been planning a trip to Europe for the summer and every time we plan a trip, I get pregnant these last three...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Live with gratitude and appreciation. Make good choices that produce residuals. (Matthew McCaughey) Gratitude is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Gratitude is something I have this Thanksgiving and it’s an attitude I’ve had to learn along the way despite my circumstances. My life past the age of 22 took unexpected twists and turns. Change had to happen in my attitude in order for gratitude to become my norm. Each twist and turn, aka challenge, has changed me into a more compassionate human being. This is or hasn’t been easy.

Happy Halloween

Never in my wildest dreams did I think having a kid would be so much fun, laughter and hard work. Harrison Shore came into this world on June 26th, 2014. It was a roller coaster ride to get him here. Being pregnant for 18 months out of the last two years proved to be harder than I imagined. Losing 3 kids before him ended up being as hard as what I experienced during my first marriage, www.heathervshore.com/dv-story/. More on the infertility story later. But no more sadness… look at how stinking cute he is. He is our pride and joy and I’m honored to be his mother. Can’t wait to see what sweet...
