First let me introduce myself and my family! My name is Amanda, I have two girls at home, one in heaven and we are expecting our rainbow baby in July! As my tag line states I run a gang, a gang of girls! Yes all my babies are girls, they keep us on our toes most days and honestly I would not trade them for the world!
I was 24 going on 25 when I had my oldest daughter, Brynn. She’s 7 now and we have grown so much together, I was a single mom and she was and still is my reason to do better, be better and never quit.
Next is miss Harper, she’s my crazy! She was born in October of 2017, our Friday the 13th baby! I was 29 and didn’t think I would have anymore babies! Boy was I wrong! Harper came in like a wind storm and our lives have been more exciting every day since!
In 2018 we bought our first home, after looking at 20+ houses we kept coming back to the one I fell in love with and we bought! We found out shortly after that we were expecting our third baby, another girl. Everything was fine until June when we had our 20 week anatomy scan. Our perfect little girl was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome and a hypo-plastic left heart defect. She had hydrops in her abdomen and chest cavities, a large cystic hygroma and edema over her whole body. They told us she would not make it and offered to terminate. We chose to let her fight and give it to god. Our little Sophia lost her battle at almost 23 weeks. They induced me on August 3rd and she was born sleeping on August 4th, 2018.
Loosing Sophia took a toll on all of us, I think I took it the worst, I was diagnosed with Postpartum Depression and struggled for months with it.
Now we are expecting our rainbow baby in July! Almost 11 months to the day that we lost Sophia, it’s like she sent us a little sister that she choose for us ❤️
