  • my marriage and the birth of my children are important milestones but they don't define me. Mine would probably be having a stroke at age 32. I had two young sons to raise and they kept telling me I would never walk alone again. I threw a walker across the room at a physical therapist. I spent 17 months learning to walk again. I now walk without assistance. I am stronger than I ever dreamed I could be..that defines me.

  • The first time I saw my baby and she was put on my chest! I always thought I would cry the first time I saw her. I didnt! I was soo in awe and when my Dr. put her on my chest all I could think was "This came out of me!!" She was huge!! And so beautiful! Ill never forget it!

  • My bggest defining moment was after my so was born and I became a stay at home mom. It was during this time I realized I could go back to college and still follow my dream career. So that is what I did. Now I am set to graduate in may with my second baby due in sept. A lot of people think you can only have one thing or another but you can make things work. I have gone to school full time, worked 30+ hr/wk, and raised my son(now with another on the way). I just want other women to realize it doesn't have to be family or goals, it can be both!
