I was born in 1983. The #1 song the day I was born was “Billie Jean”. My husband and I have known each other almost all our lives (since I was like six or seven) but lost touch when he went to a different high school (he was also three grades ahead of me.) We began dating in 2004 and were married in 2008.
I have a good family, good education, make a comfortable living, blah blah blah but that didn’t help us expand our family with a human child very easily. We decided to try to add to our family once I turned 30 (he was 34) and got pregnant within six months, however it was not a viable pregnancy. We’ve now terminated three pregnancies for medical reasons. We lost our first baby to a renal/kidney abnormality at 19 weeks in February 2014; only one kidney developed and it was not functioning, which is lethal or “not compatible with life”. We lost our second baby to a neural tube defect at 13 weeks in September 2014. We lost our third baby again to a neural tube defect at 12 weeks in September 2015. Our rainbow baby, McLovin, was born in November 2016, a little over three years after our first positive pregnancy test.
I am a doggie and cat mother to my beautiful pet children, both 8 year old girls. I cry when I see the sad animal commercials on TV, especially the ones with the Sarah McLachlan music. My pets are my little angels and I’d rather spend time with them than just about anyone else on this planet.
I am a lifelong New England resident and love love love the New England Patriots and summer vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Political Science and an MBA. I work in finance for a billion dollar CPG company. I was born and raised Catholic but am now an atheist. Welcome to my little corner of the internet world.
