On December 10th, 2015, my sister received a phone call that changed her life. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system. I remember leaving work to be with her. I remember sitting beside her in complete disbelief, trying to process the news. And I remember her saying to me, "it's crazy how one phone call can change your whole life."

Joe and Faye are 3 years and 2 days apart. They actually came very close to having the same birthday. I went to the hospital “in labor” with Faye the night before Joe’s 3rd birthday and spent about 6 hours there without any progression. Since I was already very overdue, the doctor suggested I start the induction process, but I decided to go back home instead and wait it out. I really didn’t want my kids to have to share a birthday. I was induced 2 days later.

Last Friday marked the 2 year anniversary of my 2nd trimester abortion -- the day we said goodbye to our daughter, Grace. The day started with tears and ended with a family dance party. It was perfect.

The New Year is a time to reflect on the past year and enter into the next with a renewed sense of hope and enthusiasm. For me, 2017 was an absolute blessing. After 2 rough years struggling to grow our family, we finally welcomed sweet Faye Elizabeth into the world last January. That little lady has brought me back to life in a million and one ways and I can't believe she will be turning one in a few weeks. I spent the first half of 2017 in shock that she was actually here and the 2nd half in shock with how fast the first half went.

Today I came home to a letter from a collection agency for a balance we owe on our abortion. An abortion that happened 2 years ago next month.
