I am married with nine kids, with five living here with us. We have lost four children through early miscarriage caused by Factor V Leiden. Our children are busy interceding for us until we arrive home with them.
I am struggling with the Cross of mental illness: depression, panic disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. It's a long road but the path of my sanctification and deeper union with the Suffering Christ.
I'm a stay at home mom to our children, and my husband is a software developer. It's been quite a change from being a college graduate to a stay at home mom, but thanks be to God and His graces, I'm getting things figured out.

I began this blog as a way to find support in my conversion, especially in my reception into the Church. I lost a bunch of friends and who knows what else. Since my reception, marriage, and having children; it's grown into a blog where I write about my life as a Catholic mom - the good, the bad, and the ugly.
Our precious children in Heaven, pray for us until we meet again.
Why 'Bear Wrongs Patiently'?
To bear wrongs patiently is a spiritual act of mercy. While I fail a great deal at this, I find incredible peace when I can bear wrongs patiently. I know I have committed many wrongs against people, therefore I can't get too hung up when wrongs are given to me.
