30 Day Blog Challenge-Day One

I always try to "meet" anyone who comments or starts following my blog and recently Jessie left a really sweet comment and I hopped over to her blog.  Jessie is doing a 30 day blog challenge and I thought about doing it as well.  I have been kind of absent from the blog world lately and thought this might help me get back into it...but I wasn't sold on the idea yet.  I scrolled down through the days and noticed what the 18th was..."Your Favorite Birthday"...well...the 18th of this month is actually my birthday.  And I thought it would be a great way to celebrate my blogging birthday!  So the decision was made to try this blog challenge.  I don't think I have ever posted everyday for a month and October is turning out to be a pretty busy month, but I'm still going to try it!  Join me, wont you?

So day one agenda is to introduce myself.  I'm going to keep it brief, but try to get as much in as I can. 

I was born and raised in rural south central Kentucky and I love the beautiful foothills of the Appalachians and the amazing lake that surround the area in which I live.  I accepted Christ at an early age and I love Jesus!  I have an older brother, a younger brother and I had a half sister who passed away four years ago this week.  I have a degree in Social Work and my LSW and I love helping others and finding resources.  I love kids.  I met my husband on Valentines Day and married on New Years Eve of the next year.  This year will be our 5th anniversary!  We have a 3 1/2 year old son and our beautiful daughter was stillborn September 2, 2009.  I am pregnant with our rainbow baby and am due before Easter.  I love my family, reading, being surrounded by those I love and music.  I also love crafting, sewing, scrapbooking and photography.  My passion is helping others through the loss of a child and preparing care packages for the local hospital for parents who experience stillbirth.  I have been asked to speak at various venues to raise awareness and support for pregnancy and infant loss and feel blessed to have such a loving God who never ceases to amaze me with His grace and compassion.
