My name is Mary and I am a mom to 2 sweet children. One child lives here with us, another watches over us from above. I became a mom for the first time on August 27, 2010 when my daughter Addison Breann arrived silently in this world. Her death has made an enormous impact on me and how I view the world. Thankfully, we welcomed her screaming brother, Joshua Patrick, into the world on July 12, 2012. Although I never got the chance to know my firstborn, her short life has shaped me in to who I am today and for that I am grateful. This blog is the story of my life after Addison.
