About Me

Moxie Katherine was born sleeping on August 28th, 2010. She was our first child. We weren't able to get very many pictures of her as the hospital had not dealt with a still birth in a long time. All our pictures were very fuzzy as well. So I remember her in the pictures friends and family have taken for me. With beauty, spunk, and sass! And when I see her name in pictures from all over I know they are full of Moxie! I hope you will enjoy them as I do, and if you would like to submit your own, just make sure to tell me where it was taken. That way I know all the wonderful places my Moxie has traveled!

Day 2 identity Moxie Katherine

Moxie Katherine my first born. She got her name from my late nights watching history channel while prego.  On one program they were talking about old sodas, and Moxie was one of them! I loves it! Katherine was after my great grandma. I loved the names, the meanings, all of it. When we found out she would be stillborn. I knew even more that she was that she would need that spunky sassy name!!!

White Bluff Tennessee

Thoughts in my head

I lay in bed and watch your sister sleep. You are always in my mind.
I wonder when I next meet you if you will be young or have grown?
How do I make it without you?
I stare at your picture, I hold your urn.
I long to hold you and see you smile. 
I cling to your sister and know only you two have shared that space inside me. And somehow that means you are connected.

First word blog

So my husband, myself, and our rainbow baby were walking into a store the other day. We pass another couple with a set of twins about the same age, 1ish.  The mother says "I will trade you two for one!"
She didn't mean anything by it, she didn't know me or my situation. But I started balling. And guess what that is okay! 
I would give anything to have both my girls with me. But a simple comment can affect you very deeply!

Moxie part of something special, Thailand!

This pic is taken in thailand, phuket, at the "big buddha" temple high up on a mountin with view over phuket.
They have been building it for 9 years now and think it will be ready in 5 years. It has been built only with donations. Big buddha is 45 meters high and 25 meters wide. Its very beautiful.
We wrote Moxie on a white marble stone that will be a part of the big buddha.
