Before and After


The coronavirus has brought into focus the recognition that our lives can change overnight. Our lives have been moving forward with work commitments, aspirations for our careers, and quality time with family and friends. We’ve tucked in exercise, vacations, and reunions. Our lives were rich with activity and purpose.

Rebuilding your family after child loss

Before we lost Brian we were a tight fun family. We were full of laughter, crazy moments, adventures, shared stories & a togetherness that could not be broken. The four of us were thick as thieves. Then our worst day happened & in a flash our family came crashing down. We were no longer what we once were. But I am here to tell you, your family can put the pieces back together again. Its not an easy road. You will be broken. You will make mistakes. The unhealed parts of you will unintentionally hurt the ones you love.

My Blessings

Sitting here thinking about the state of the world right now, my boy, my blessings & these two!!  Being my husband & stepdaughter has not been an easy task after losing Brian. But, they love me, support me & forgive me for the short comings I had as a wife & stepmom after we all lost him. That’s the true testament of family, isn’t it? It’s not only being there when you’re spot on as mom, wife & stepmom, which I always took great pride in. It’s being there when things fall apart. Crash all the way down.
