This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

My name is Laura. I am a mother, a wife, and a woman who has experienced infertility and pregnancy loss. My grandmother adopted me as an infant but my mother was always in my life for better or for worse. She is bipolar and I have plenty of issues I need to work through because of her mental instability and abusive behavior. It seems that most people have dysfunctional families, so I'm sure nothing I have to rant about is shocking in any way, but I need a place to safely rant, complain, and talk about my life and my thoughts without the prying eyes of my family. I want a place to share the joys of motherhood and maybe sometimes the heartache of loss as well.
