In 2010, when Susan and her daughter met Tom and his three kids, Susan knew right away that one day they would be one big, crazy-happy family. One year later her dream came true and thus began her new roll of wife and stepmom. Then on Mother’s Day in 2015, the same year their oldest started college, Susan and Tom found out that they were expecting another child. Alice became the littlest of their crew in December of 2015, and has filled their home and hearts with unimaginable joy.
The greatest gift bestowed to Susan is that of being a mother. She has worn many hats in her 43 years but being the mom to five amazing children is definitely the hat she wears with the greatest amount of pride.
Susan does not consider herself a natural writer, but rather found the gift of writing as a tool to help her move through grief after her daughters, Anna and Abigail, went to heaven due to a tragic accident in 2013. A dear friend set up a blog and gifted her an outlet to pour her broken heart. She’s been writing ever since. Susan will forever be grateful for this gift as she has found that the written word along with her unwavering faith in God has allowed her to stay very connected to her daughters and their beautiful lives here and in heaven.
