I was a teen mother who worked her way through school while caring for a child with medical needs. I am a domestic violence survivor who uses her journey of survivorship to help others. I am now married to an amazing man who is currently Active Duty in the Unites States Navy and is my rock throughout everything I face.
We have a 12 year-old son, JJ, who is one of the most responsible, funny, and respectful young men I have ever met. He has taught me so much as a young mother and pushed me to pursue my dreams even at times when they felt impossible.
We also have a 2 year-old son, Elijah, who is truly our miracle baby. We were told that he passed away, only to find out he was alive and kicking!!! He has made his presence known ever since and keeps all of us on our toes!
We also have a daughter, Saniyah, who was called home before we were able to hear her voice. We hold Saniyah close to our heart and know that she is looking down at us and feels the amount of love we all have for her. Losing her has rocked our family in so many ways, but we continue to push ourselves to be better people and honor her memory in everything we do!
