I love photography! I started getting serious about it in March of 2012 and have been trying to pick up as much as I can to improve my skills ever since. My ultimate goal is to eventually become a full-time child and family portrait photographer.
My husband and I have wonderful twin boys whom we absolutely adore. It was a very tough start for them (and us) as they were born 10 weeks early and spent a great deal of time in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Our bigger little guy, weighed in at 3 lbs 7 oz at birth and stayed in the hospital for 10 weeks before we were able to take him home. Our little guy weighed only 1 lb 14 oz at birth and due to many complications had a 6 month NICU stay and several surgeries before he was given the ok to go home.
Our littlest still has some medical hurdles to overcome, but he makes a little progress every day. Our current battle is with feeding. He has a surgically placed feeding tube that he is dependent upon for much of his daily nutritional needs because he won't eat enough to gain weight and grow. This allows us to supplement his diet with nutrient packed formula delivered directly into his stomach through his feeding tube.
It's not an easy life. I have had to learn things about therapy, medicine, procedures, specialists and being an in-home care giver that I never wanted to know. Every day brings challenges and frustrations, but we have been so very blessed, beyond anything I could have ever imagined! We're a tough little family and we've found that we can get through anything if we have love, faith, and continue persevere in the face of adversity.
One day at a time, we are getting there...
and we are doing it together.
