Meet My Children
My work is very much connected to my story. Before I had my son and daughter I lost 4 children in a row. The first two were so early I have nothing to remember them by except my memories and their names, Adam and Michael.We struggled to get pregnant for a year after that, so my sympathy for folks going through infertility really grew. I diagnosed myself and treated myself naturally for a luteal phase defect and then got pregnant with twins right away. When we showed up for the twins ultrasound it showed that they stopped growing at 6 weeks. I named them Louisa and Lauren. They would have been due in April.
That year of loss and heartache was a defining collection of moments for me which I will carry with me forever. I was blessed with two healthy children after this time, but I will never forget my little angels and I want mothers all around the world to know that their babies matter. No matter how young or how small. They matter. And to moms that do not have a child for the world to see ... You are still a mother! And that is what I seek to show the world with my nests. Each bead represents a child whether living or not.
