Oldest Daughter – First Generation

Middle Child (Daughter) – First Generation

Only Son – First Generation

Oldest Daughter (Twin) – Second Generation

Middle Daughter (Twin) – Second Generation

Youngest Daughter – Second Generation

There once was a young woman

Single as could be

She met a man she loved who gave her the gift of a daughter

One day he was there and one day he wasn’t

But she was still there tending to their daughter

with the help of her youngest sister who was proud to be an Auntie

The years pass and the woman marries

When happy no more she left the place she called home

Painting her new home she falls to the floor from fainting

A trip to the doctor tells her she’s to again be a proud mother

and then came the gift of another daughter

what a beautiful gift

Alone in a strange place

They had now become the three amigos

Sad and lonely she returns home to the town she will forever love

More years pass she finds love again

She marries and is given the gift of a child

This time she would bear her only son

Sadly two years later her husband passes

She’s alone again naturally

But she’s not truly alone

She has three beautiful children

She wonders if she’ll ever find love again

One day she finds herself a trucker

and once again she marries

Having tied her tubes years ago

She thinks she will never have the gift of children again

Someone else lets her know she’s yet a mother again

To her shock she finds she’s having twins

and low and behold she has more daughters as cute as can be

and after two more years she has her last gift and it’s again a daughter

She ties her tubes one last time

and her tree is complete

But sadly her marriage again fell victim and she and her tree of children were on their own again, naturally

Of course she wasn’t meant to be alone

But who was out there? Would she ever truly find her forever love?

One day at play in the park with her kids

The love of her life stops by

She dreamed of him as a little girl

Delivered newspapers to his family home

But years passed and they were never free at the same time

And now they were both free

And what was truly meant to be

Could begin

And she finally found her forever love and they married

Now they are

A Family through and through

Happily blended ever after

On Friday, January 13, 1984 at 7:13pm, I was blessed with the birth of my first born. She was beautiful as could be. I couldn’t have done better. The deliver was tough, it was come and go for a while. We both spent months in the hospital, but today, she is an amazing young woman.

One, Super Bowl Sunday, January 28, 1990 at 3:15pm, I was blessed with my second beautiful daughter. I was surprised as I had been told I wouldn’t be able to conceive again after the trauma of my first child and the multiple miscarriages. What can I say, god felt differently.

On Thursday, June 3, 1993 at 6:13pm after hours of walking the marble hospital floors trying to evict my two weeks late first son from my womb. He finally decided to grace us with his presence. I do thing I was ever in so much pain. I know right then, that after all that, I was getting my tubes tied as soon as I could. He was a solid 7lbs, 6oz with a head as big and round as it could be, but the smile on his face was unforgettable.

With tubes tied the good lord still saw fit to reward me with a beautiful set of twin daughters on Thursday, March 9, 2000 and my last prize of my 5th beautiful daughter who was born on Saturday, March 30, 2002 at 1:32 pm at which time my tubes were tied for a second time. Remaining grateful for all that I have.

I feel more than blessed to have given birth so many times and given the strength to raise them through all of our trials and tribulations.

I feel even further blessed to have been a part of so many other lives and act as a mother to many other children. Children have always warmed my heart and fill the emptiness that formerly resided in my heart. My heart is now content as all the pieces are In place.

I give my love to my children, to my husband, my family and friends and bless the life that we all have. I wouldn’t trade the past 30 years that I’ve been a mother for anything.

I’ve enjoyed every play, recital, soccer game, basketball game, trip to the pool, every beach, every vacation, every doctor’s appointment, and every time I was needed.

Thank you my children for being such a big part of my happiness.
