We Prayed For You

When I was growing up all I ever wanted to do was be a mom. It’s kind of weird saying that out loud but it’s the truth. As I write this post fighting back tears I question myself when it come to how “real” I should be with you guys. Well here goes. 

At an early age I was unexpectedly  introduced to motherhood. My grandmother who had temporary custody of my younger sister and I passed away when I was 18 leaving me with the responsibility of caring for my 13-year-old sister. It was literally the definition of the deaf leading the blind. I gave up a $100,000 college scholarship and what I thought was a normal life to make sure we would not be separated. What I got back in return was more than I could ever ask for. Faith, perseverance and a taste of unconditional love. Our relationship helped me figure out what my purpose was in this world. Children.


As an adult I’ve been able to accomplish things my teenage self couldn’t imagine. From going back to school, becoming an educator and later on finding additional passions; being a mom will always be my greatest accomplishment. I am so ready.


We are so protective over the idea of bringing a child into this world that we kept the news from you guys until I turned 6 months. Yup I’m 6 months. This pregnancy has been difficult  but with faith anything is possible. I ask that you guys spread a little of it for my family and I. It’s my 30th birthday and I couldn’t have gotten a better gift.  

CHRIS 2XOXO See you soon.
