Meeting a New Friend

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of meeting a blogger buddy of mine in person for the first time!  Ashley and I met over a cup of coffee when I was in town for work.  We had plenty to gab about.  It felt like we’ve know each other for years thanks to keeping up with each other on our blogs!  It is always comforting to meet other baby loss mommas, so we can share stories about our babies, or just chat about whatever.  It’s unfortunate the circumstances that brought us together, but I’m still really glad we got the chance to meet. 

I’m sure Little Nolan and my Green Beans are having a great time together up in heaven. :)



  1. That's so cool that you were able to finally meet! It's like meeting a pen-pal at last!

  2. Awesome. I'll be over there next week :)


  3. That is great that you were able to meet up with a blog friend!

  4. Isn't it wonderful to finaly see someone in person who knows your struggles and has brightened your day along the way :)

    I'm sure you all had a nice coffee date. If you're ever in Memphis, TN call me :)

    Hugs and have a Great weekend! What'cha cookin'? LOL

  5. I'm glad you got to meet up with Ashley. I love meeting blog friends!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
