The Midwife Didn't Even Show

http://http://dreahlouis.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-midwife-didnt-even-show.html

My husband and I had the Grievance meeting in February regarding the death of our twin daughter Aminah. We showed up at a church in Webster Grooves, Missouri. At first I was wondering why the meeting was being held in a church but I went ahead with it and met the midwife in…

The Death Photographer

Standing in Aminah’s room the door slowly opened and a head peeked through. There

was a Blondie lady standing in between the door smiling asking permission to come in. As

I gave her permission to move forward, she stepped in and shut the large door behind her.

She introduced herself as the nurse photographer. She walked over to me with a camera

around her neck and a bright red folder. She pulled a chair for me to…

The best place to stay

I recently had a very unique situation in my life: My husband and son were gone for the weekend (a camping trip for cub scouts), and I would be alone. This situation - as most Moms will attest - is rare. It is very rare to have the house to yourself for an entire weekend.…

Another reason why I miss our cats

I really, really miss our cats. They have both moved on from us, and I still find myself missing their presence in our lives. I know my son misses them (well, the one he can remember), as he occasionally sings me a song about her and how sweet she was.…

General Tso's Chicken at Home

Not something I usually do, but I came across something I was eager to share!





I like Chinese food, but I haven't had food from a neighborhood Chinese restaurant in years. The closest I've come to enjoying some was going to P.F. Chang's last year, but it still doesn't compare. So I have been getting my fix of egg rolls from the Publix…

Appen – A Great Work From Home Opportunity for Anyone Looking for Extra Income

Giving birth, whether naturally or by C-section, takes a toll on a woman’s body and sometimes her mind. Having to go back to work within weeks or 3 months of giving birth does not allow a family the time to adapt and bond with their new addition. Unfortunately, in the United States returning to work within 3 months of having a child is the norm and for most families a must. Other families run into the hard situation where both parent’s need to work to support the family, but child care costs…

When you didn't go home for the holidays

The holidays are a big deal in our household. Although Christmas is not my favorite holiday (it's Halloween, in case you are wondering), I really enjoy giving the "perfect" presents, and the food and the extra time spent together. I like the decorations and find joy in the idea that we are celebrating each other and another year of being together.…

Raising one or more children on your own isn’t easy and if financial shortcomings arise, then you need to start making lists and prioritise. But don’t give up hope just yet.

Staying home with the kids

Traffic is what did me in.



I had it all planned out: I left work a little earlier than normal, I had a route home that avoided the major roads and I was excited. I was going to make it to my son's school in time for curriculum night.…
