Memoir of a Teenager

Ashlyn had to create a memoir for her Language Arts class at school. Her assignment was to select a memorable event in her life and I have to say I was a bit worried when she chose the birth of the triplets and losing Hadley. Picking this topic meant that we were going to be doing a lot of talking about what happened during my pregnancy and after and I wasn't sure if I was up for that.

Ultimately, it ended up being a great experience for us both. It gave Ashlyn a chance to ask me questions about things that are not always easy to talk about and it gave me a chance to share with her all of my memories, the good and the bad. Her memoir turned out beautifully and we decided to work together on summarizing it and turning it into a slide show. She did an amazing job.

I love you Ashlyn and am so proud of you!!
