S C Mom of 4

As I write this I cringe. The thought of putting my life out there 2 years ago was so scary, but now... I feel like the relationships I have made in the last 2 years from simply sharing my life have opened my eyes to the world. People are so scared to share those hard things but the empowerment you give yourself with the courage to be you is exciting.

I'm Sierra, a mom of 4. 3 biological and 1 chosen, married to a man I've been in love with since I was 11. My life has been ups and downs but honestly, who's hasn't. My want, to make it ok to be me and help others feel it's OK to be them.

I want to also share the hard times in my life, including finding out the medical mystery of my chosen son. Since he did not come from my body and wasn't in a good place for the first 3 years of his life, each day is a new day of finding out things that his body is going through and his mind. Adoption is hard, but makes it even harder with kiddos that have Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder and born addicted to drugs, along with a plethora of other things he is now learning how to do because of the abuse and neglect.

Taking a step into helping the girls understand his behaviors and how we are trying to help him, all while balancing making sure they know they are loved and focused on. Especially with a new baby added to this mix. Starting homeschooling half way through the year so that the transitions to a different state is easier.

Exciting times of moving across country with no job, no house, a trailer of our lives and 4 kids, 3 large dogs and no family where we are going.

Learning how to be a stay at home mom when I've worked full time my entire life. The transition from Funeral Director and Office Manager of the Mortuary to a stay at home mom of 4 kiddos under 7 was one I NEVER imagined for myself. In fact if you asked me 2 years ago the plan was no more kids (o ly had my 2 girls) and work til I die.

So much going and the chaos is our daily. Walk with me through it all and ask questions along the way!
