Welcome ICLW! It's been awhile since I've participated. Having a toddler keeps you on your toes! For those of you that are new, I am a mama to my angel baby, Josey Starr, and adoptive mama to my pride and joy, Zoey Beth. We lost Josey due to severe preeclampsia (borderline HELLP). I spent a month in the hospital fighting the disease and it almost took me with it. Preeclampsia is serious stuff, folks!
Long story short, we were told not to try again, then to try again, and eventually we adopted. Now that I'm considered a "mid-life" mama (ugh), the thought of another pregnancy that may or may not have a happy ending was too much. We've finally found our happy place. The scars from our loss still remain and Josey is never far from our minds, but we've found ourselves again and are enjoying life once more.
Lately our days consist of chasing a rambunctious toddler and renovating our home. We've been transients (aka homeless) for the past two months. I'm holding out hope that we'll be back in our house sometime next month. Please, sweet baby Jesus, let us be in our house! LOL
You can check out my renovation blog HERE. I'm hoping for lots of updated pictures in the next couple of weeks! :)
