my story

MilkMemories is a labor of love for me.  I became a mother very young to my oldest Son, and although he grew in my heart instead of my tummy my heart knew no difference.  I was always his Mama.  My husband and I tried conceiving a sibling for our son for 7 long years.  After a miscarriage and a lot of tears there was nothing we wanted more than to complete our family.  Little did I know what was in store for us.  In July of 2014 my dream came true and I finally got to make official what was all along...  I got to legally adopt my son.  It was one of the best days of my entire life and I felt a sense of peace and contentment.  Apparently there was bigger plans in store.  A few short weeks later we received the incredible surprise that not only was I blessed with being a Mama once in one week but twice!  We were finally expecting our rainbow baby that spring.  After our youngest was born I was determined to breastfeed him at all costs.  He latched right on and it seemed like the most natural thing I had ever done.  We did however overcome many challenges along the way including tongue and lip ties and food allergies, to be able to continue to breastfeed well into toddler hood and he is still going strong, for that I will always be grateful.  I have been blessed to be able to share my liquid love with other babies by donating milk whenever possible.  The bond of a mother and child is unbreakable and memorizing.  My family is my everything.  Each day I strive to be better for my children.  I want them to know kindness, love, and good.  I wanted a way to make these precious years stand still.  To be able to think back on these memories, the building blocks of my life, and in this MilkMemories was born.
