My personal journey...

At the ripe young age of six, I immigrated to America to join my mother in the states and to meet my new dad that I had spent months and years dreaming and hoping for. It was my first quest of adventure out of many to come and my first of many second chance experiences. This new country had hope of opportunity and promise and I couldn’t wait to dive right in to all that it had to offer.

Fast forward many years, after a few bumps in the road, I had completed a bachelor's degree with honors, married the man of my dreams, and was expecting our precious first born son. My husband and I decided that I would be a stay at home mom so I worked up until the eighth month of my pregnancy. All was expected, nothing out of the ordinary as far as pregnancies go. Baby showers were had, preparations were made, and we felt ready as ever to start our new life with our little Josiah. God always seems to have other plans though…

Once arriving at the hospital after a full day of laboring at home three days prior to my due date, my husband and I found out that our baby boy’s heartbeat had stopped. We were devastated but we were not angry. We knew God had a plan. During that time of sorrow, hundreds of people told us their stories and reached out in kindness. We had never seen so much human compassion. We knew that Josiah’s story helped so many, and that it was never God’s intent for him to live on this Earth. He had other plans for our little mighty boy. 

The process of healing has been rough and I'd be lying if I told you that I'm 100%. But day by day, brick by brick, we all find a way to cope with our deepest pains. My method has been through prayer, and through furniture. I know that everything happens for a reason, and God has showed me light in pure darkness. Through this process, I have found who I am as a woman, and what I am meant to do. Thank you for coming along this journey of creativity and discovery with me as a mama-to-be becomes a small business entrepreneur. This was my second chance.
