Hi! My name is Ashley and I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, grandchild, niece, and friend. The first two descriptions are fairly new. I married my best friend and high school sweetheart on October 4, 2014. He is the most amazing person. While we’ve been together for roughly 10 years, I am still getting use the term wife.
The second description; mother, is also new. While I’ve been a furmom to two cats since 2008 and one dog since 2012, I’ve never really thought much about the term mom. I take care of them like they are my children and they are so spoiled. However, that is not the mom I was referring to. On August 1, 2015, I became a mom to an angel. I was only six months pregnant when we lost her. “I’m sorry there is no heart beat” are words parents should never hear.
I am extremely lucky to have such an amazing support system. Mark is the most loving and supportive husband. Without his positive attitude, I don’t think I would be able to cope with everything going on. Our family and friends are just as amazing. They are always there to talk to and let us know they are thinking of us.
While I don’t wish this heartache on anyone, I know this type of thing is going to happen. My hope is to share my story and help others see they are not alone.
