LaTasha Frye (34), Sh'Raun (12) and Shyne (3months)
“Motherhood has impacted my life in so many ways - it has taught me to be patient, humble, and go with the flow of things.
My experience having an abortion was awful and I regretted doing it. I then got pregnant two months later with my twins Shiran and Shiloe whom I lost 11/08/2009. I was 23 weeks pregnant and was told they couldn't do anything to save my sons. I was heartbroken to have to plan a funeral for them. It was the worst experience a mother could have. Afterwards, I went into this dark place and I never wanted another kid, I withdrew from my oldest and that wasn't a good place. I remember gaining 86 lbs and just being so unhappy. Now I’m the proud mom of two sons and trying my best to be a great mom to both of them. I owe it all to god honestly. My story is amazing and I’m living in it.
I’m currently mothering my 12 year and 3 month old, my 12 year old is a breeze - easy peezy lemon squeezy. the 3 month old has me in a bit of funk as he cries around the clock. I have had to change my diet, pumping and nursing has been amazing and also hard. I’m battling postpartum head on - I refuse to let it beat me or my kids be affected by it. This journey is a very hard journey - working full time and still trying to be hands on with my kids. I’m also a single mom but that’s a story for another time. I know things will be great, I’m just grateful to be able to have these two kids.”
