Pray for Naomi


My Irish godchild is here!
Naomi Grace Brenda was born September 13 at only 26 weeks 4 days gestation. She’s unbelievably beautiful and heart-stoppingly tiny, weighing only 1 lb 8 oz.

She is full of fight, but her lungs just weren’t ready for breathing yet, and she’s having a rough time, y’all.
Her sisters got to meet her yesterday

These girls sure would like to bring their sister home, but it’s not looking like a sure thing. 26 weeks is really early to be born

I’m the 40-something-ish wife of my beloved Computer Guy.

I’m the adoring and incredibly proud mom of nine children…two saints…seven in training.

I’m my brothers’ sister and my parents’ daughter.

I’m a devout Catholic, an avid political junkie, able debater, aspiring home-maker, amazing friend, and I make the meanest Chicken Fried Steak you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating.

I’m a homeschooling guru, a writing addict, a sometimes public-speaker, and an advocate for staying true to the person God created you to be.

I can’t live in a house with white walls, sing Billy Joel songs while I wash the dishes, will read anything you put in my hands, and am completely obsessed with rhinestones and cute shoes.

I am just like moms the whole world over, and then some.
