As you can tell I am new to all of this so bare with me. I started this blog to share my scrapbooking "adventures". Scrapping has been my way to deal with the tragedies I have endured in my life. I also hope to somehow turn this blog into some sort of support system for those who have lost their loved ones. I have had to fight to recover from my injuries, to deal with the death of my only two children, and most importantly fight for justice...You can not kill two children and walk away without any ramifications and it seems like that just may very well happen. One day I hope to have some sort of organization in my childrens memory. I would love to lend any support to anyone who has suffered a loss because if I heard my story I would say that there was no way I would be able to survive such a tremendous loss. Don't ask my how but somehow my husband and I get up everyday. I believe that it is our children that are giving us the strength to deal with Mikey and Annie's death. Plus we have received so much prayers and support I KNOW that has also helped us cope. PLEASE...reach out to me if you have any advice to deal with such pain or if you need help coping. I know the future may look bleak but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

- I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.
