To continue....I am the 2nd of six children. I was born in North Dakota, but raised in several states since dad was in the Air Force. I love to spend time with our children and grandchildren most of all, but we live 4 hours apart.

Thankful for the life God has given me.

Hello, My name is Dee

I am a mother of 2 boys and 1 girl and a grandma of 1 boy and 1 baby on the way of which we are not sure yet if it is a boy or a girl.  I had all of my children naturally without any drugs.  My oldest son is name Joshua he is 23 and he is the step dad to our 5 yo grandson Cameron and the soon to be dad in Feb. to our new grandbaby.  Joshua is the General Manager at one of the Jiffy Lube's here in Central Florida.  Our second son Jeremy is 21 he is a Team Leader at Chick-Fil-A in Central Florida and he taught himself how to play guitar, ukulele, drums, keyboard & harmonaca.  And then we have our daughter Kaytlin (Kayte) she helps me babysit right now, I home-schooled her from 10th grade-12th because she had a reading disorder and the school system was not working with her.  Kayte is our singer, she has been singing since she was 2, she auditioned last summer for a place in AMTC (Actors, Models & Talents for Christ and received 3 callbacks and was excepted into the program in which she completed this summer and graduated from there.  She sang in front of about 45 different record producers and received 4 callbacks in her genre which is Contemporary Christian Music, she is putting together a 3 song demo to send out to them and other CCM producers.  Jeremy and Kayte have a band called The Second Beginning and they released a CD in 2009 on their own, they write songs and sing all over.  We just got back from Atlanta where they sang at an Arts and Entertainment Conference last weekend.  You can pull up youtube videos fro Kayte and for The Second Beginning by going to .com/user/flkayte2004youtube.www and

TheSecondBeginning.com/user/youtube.www

I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, when my daughter was about to turn 5 we followed God's plan for us and moved to a small town in upstate NY at the bottom of the Adirondack Mountains to work at a Christian Camp.  My husband's parents lived about 10 minutes from this camp and have been volunteering there for years.  It was the best move we have ever made, that was in June 1998, but in March of 2004 my Mom here in FL was getting sicker with her Lupus and was requiring bi-weekly blood transfusions and then a month later my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease so we prayed long and hard and made the decision to move back here to FL as soon as we could, which that was in November of 2004.  My mom passed away in Sept of 2005 so we were able to spend quality time with her and for that I am very thankful.  My dad is now 83 and the Parkinson's has slowed him down a lot, but he is still kicking.  We now live in Altamonte Springs, FL so were are not  actually in the City of Orlando where it is CRAZY.  After living in the country for 6 1/2 years coming back to city life has not been fun, I can't wait to go back to that simple country life again.

My husband and I will be married 24 years on October 21st, we actually were set up on a blind date by my ex-boyfriend who happens to be his bestfriend.  My ex Mike and I had been broke up for a few years, when I received a call from him 1 day telling me he was married now with a little girl, but his bestfriend was single and he thought I was a perfect match for him and wondered if I would meet him at his house for dinner and a movie so I said sure.  Before I left my house I told my mom that I should be home early, well I meet him and it was love at first sight, I got home at 3am, my mom was still up cause she was a night owl and she said, " I thought you would be home early,"  I told her, " I just met the man I was gonna marry."  Just over a year later we were married and it has been an AMAZING ride.

When I have time to myself, I like to work on crafts, like blankets, I make for children who are sick and I have been praying for or for birthday presents.  Right now I am working on something I actually have never made for my little 4 yo I watch full-time for her birthday in Nov. a tutu dress.  It is actually coming along well so far.

I hope that with the experiences that I have had or am having that I may be able to help someone, but in 2008 I had something go wrong, we are not sure what, but I lost my memory, everything before 2008 is gone.  Everything I know is what people have told me.  I have basically started over in my life.  I pray everyone has a BLESSED weekend.

Hi everyone. My name is Teri and I am 19 years old. I have a son who is 14 months old and would love to meet other moms near me who are young mothers as well. I live and grew up in northeast Ohio. The relationship between my son's father and I is a bit rocky and confusing, but I am in love with him. We met in high school and just passed our 4 year anniversary. I don't have any friends so I hope I get to meet other mommys and become friends.
