strong mama + cash giveaway

Oh hey guys. I'm just sitting here on Sunday night having some contractions. No big deal.
I wish I could say that they were super intense. But at least they are becoming more regular. Time will tell.
This prolonged birth thing is new to me. I guess the whole "every pregnancy is different" thing is fairly accurate after all.
So while I'm over here trying to waddle this baby out, I have a very special treat for you all.
Today, Sheridan from Journey with the Johnson's is taking over the blog. She has such an incredible story and is one of the strongest mama's I know. Just go ahead and read for yourself… AND don't forget to enter a fun cash giveaway at the very bottom!!

Hey everyone!

My name is Sheridan Johnson, and you can find me blogging over here.  I would definitely categorize myself as a lifestyle blogger.  I am a 27 year old woman, married to my high school sweetheart, Shane. I am also a daughter of God and I cherish our relationship very much. I am a mother to 3 kiddos, and also became an RN 3 years ago.  I love everything that has to do with photography and/or crafting these days, and even though I am not the best at either of them, I try my hardest to learn more and improve every day.

Let me start out by introducing our 3 precious kids.  My story is a little different than most, because Shane and I only have one living child.  Our oldest son, Lamar, was diagnosed with Full Trisomy 18, and he was "incompatible with life".  We had no idea what that meant at the time, and did not know what was going to be in store for us.  We ended up not carrying to term with him, and we lost him 1 day before I turned 6 months pregnant on July 14th, 2012.  To read more about him, click here.  We love him forever, and I have never taken off my necklace of his footprint ever since.

Less than one year later, we welcomed our healthy baby girl, Brielle.  She was full of life, spunk, and attitude and has been full blast ever since she was born.  To read more about her birth story, click here.  She is now 2 1/2 years old (ok, technically on December 14th she will be), and full of life, love, and happiness. Oh and maybe a little sassy attitude every now and again.  She has been the best big sister, and the best little girl we could have ever asked for.  I can't believe how much she has been through in her short life, and how much she is able to understand and comprehend.  We love her very much, and she is such a joy to raise each and every day!


Almost 1 1/2 years later, we welcomed our third child, Rochelle.  When we found out we were pregnant for the third time (of course, always planned), we were SO excited/thankful.  Since the doctors told us that there was <1% chance of what happened with Lamar, to happen again, since it didn't come from Shane or myself, we had no fear having more babies.  Well, we were definitely shocked/surprised when we found out Rochelle had Full Trisomy 13 and was also "incompatible with life". We didn't know what to think, or why God had placed another baby that was not going to live, inside of me.  What we have learned from Rochelle's experience, has taught us so much.  From the moment Rochelle entered this world, she was a fighter.  She took us on the fastest (2 months and 1 day) roller coaster of our life.  We couldn't believe that God blessed us with 2 months with our beautiful girl, with so many obstacles against her, every day.  Saying good-bye was one of the hardest things we have all had to do in our life.  


Each of our children hold such a special place in our heart, and our journey.  I would love for you all to join me and my family as we learn to truly "live" again, to experience life fully, to love deeply, and to cherish every moment.  

I am so deeply happy that Amy allowed me to guest-post that I going to be hosting my first giveaway! I will be giving away $25 cash (technically money order) to one lucky reader! Good luck everyone!

Don't miss out on following this special gal, and getting some free cash to boot!

Meanwhile, I'll be hoping my water breaks while searching for a name for this little guy - I'm beginning to think another "b" name might not be in the books for us!

Or who knows… maybe I'm actually in labor by the time anyone reads this. Fingers crossed.
