The stunning Shannon Kolodziej with her 19 month old daughter Aislin (Aizy). Shannon had a very healthy pregnancy with no morning sickness. She had to be induced at 40 weeks 6 days but the induction took beautifully and her entire labor and delivery was only 9 hours. Breastfeeding and establishing a good latch took a little effort but Shannon and Aizy are still nursing strong. Shannon very much credits her daughter for saving her life. She started using drugs in high school and before long, heroin became her drug of choice. She says that she did terrible things to support her habit. She was in and out of rehab but never really cared to stay sober. Her now husband, then boyfriend, who was also an addict, was arrested in 2011 and got sober in jail. Shannon decided to go to rehab again and detoxed from heroin but once out continued to use other drugs. She landed in the hospital ICU after almost dying from an overdose on alcohol and pills, and finally decided that she wanted to live her life. Shortly after Shannon recovered, she conceived her daughter. Shannon and her husband have started a new relationship as sober people and every day her daughter gives her the best reason to live her recovery.
