About The Kids

Meet the Boys…

Jamie and Riley are my greatest adventures, they are the chapters that were written in my book. They have taught me so much about being a Mom, and make me proud every day, even when I feel I didn’t do my best job at raising them. And at times, I am reminded how difficult it is, how different it is from what you imagined it to be. But life without them is unimaginable.

Jamie was born on the 11th April 2011. He is a boisterous little guy with a challenging personality. He brings so much fun into our lives with all his funny little sayings, always having the last say, and an answer for everything. I am told he is a lot like me when I was a kid. With those big blue eyes, he is yet to break hearts. (although I wont let him)


Riley was born on the 11th December 2013. Although he is just as boisterous, he also has a sensitive little soul, with a bright smile and a sparkle in his eye, he just knows how to charm his way out of trouble. Especially with those blue eyes and curly locks, and boy is he going to use it when he has the chance.

To my boys, Jamie and Riley, This is my wish for you…

I hope I will always have the strength to guide you through life, I hope you will learn to love, respect and be selfless. I hope that you will never feel alone and always have the courage to accept who you are. I pray that one day you will meet someone who will love you unconditionally. I promise to pick you up when you fall, and preserve your heart for as long as it will allow me the privilege, and in turn I hope that your heart will display everything that I have taught (and yet to teach) you.

Every living day I am incredibly thankful, and I am abundantly blessed to have both of you in my life. I get to wake up to your smiles every day, be a part of your childhood, hold your hand and nurture you, guide you through life and demonstrate the knowledge I carry to make your life nothing short of exceptional.

In your life, there will be tough times that will, unexplainably, be out of your control, these moments will dampen your spirit, but without these tough lessons, you will not learn. Despite these moments, know that I will always protect you, and even though you will not always grant me the benefit of the doubt regarding my decisions or be confident to trust my judgement, know that I will forever have your best interests at heart.

Even in moments that I feel discouraged, I look at you, and I know that I am loved. I have the rest of your life to look forward to. Thank you.



Have your say...
