–Family – I am blessed to be married to my best friend, and we are parents to three amazing children
–Faith – I am a Catholic Christian. While I accepted Christ as a child and recommitted my life to Christ in 2000, I spent the following six years between walking on and jumping off of the path.
–Infertility – This is where my faith truly started to both grow and deepen. At the end of 2006, after two years of trying to get pregnant (both on our own and with the help of specialists), I was left with few options. The doctors told us it would be nearly impossible to get pregnant on our own. With those odds, I gave up all control and gave it to God. If we were going to be parents, He would need to intervene.
–Relationship – During the months of deep prayer and devotion, I began to understand that God wants a relationship with each one of us – so much so that He sent His Only Son to die on the cross so that we would have the ability to go to Heaven. Our only price – full belief.
–Children – While we have been blessed with three amazing children on Earth, we still pray for our two babies in Heaven. We lost two pregnancies – the first one between the boys, and the second one after our daughter.
