About me


I have two beautiful daughters: Riley, currently 2.5 years old and Quinn, who was stillborn.  I carried Quinn to 40 weeks and everything was “perfect and normal” at my last OB appointment where she had a strong heartbeat and I was progressing well.  However, she died three days later when my contractions started and put too much stress on the umbilical cord, which we later found out was wrapped around her neck 3 times.  She arrived on her due date stillborn.  She was beautiful and perfect.  

Eight months later I was pregnant with my third child, which ended in miscarriage at 9 weeks. 

I love running and I have to run.  It's how I heal.  It’s where I learn to hold my grief in my heart as love.  It’s where I practice putting one foot in front of another.  It’s where I honor Quinn, my miscarriage, and other babies who are gone too soon.  When I am running or hiking in nature, I feel closer to Quinn.  Running is my lifeline. 

I am madly in love with my beloved husband Josh, who gives me strength and inspiration each day.  He is my rock and the most supportive and loving person on this planet.  I do not subscribe to a particular religion, but I am on a spiritual journey.  


I am writing this blog to heal.  I decided to go public with my story to give comfort to just one woman who has felt the same fear, confusion, hopelessness, love, and hurt that I have.  This is my story and this is my journey.
