I sit here not sure if this is something I want to do, but realize it is something I need to do. For myself, Kamryn, and my family. A few months after Kamryn was born a friend sent me a link to a website titled "Bridget's Light". There, I was introduced to a beautiful family who not only inspired me, but gave me hope. Then, I started following Bridget's Light and several other blogs. I felt like I knew these families. I read and read. When I was feeling down or scared I would go to one of the several blogs I had started following. I would see these other families doing "normal" things and it would comfort me. The blogging community was/is amazing. I realized that I no longer wanted to be just a reader and follower, but I wanted to become part of the community. I wanted to make connections, ask for help-advice and share my story. I am very nervous about sharing my thoughts and moments on-line for the world to see. I am not a writer. I may not clearly articulate what I want or mean to say. I may offend someone. I may look back, read something and offend myself. I am taking a deep breath and reminding myself that life takes turns you never expect, and you do things you never thought you would or could do. Here goes.
