MY #SurprisedbyMotherhood Story
I thought I was the only mother in the world that didn’t want to be a mother.  When I laid my eye on that first redheaded, brown-eyed baby boy, I knew that he was my new role in life!  As time went on and life changes happened, and we grew together,, I knew that the love I had could not be shared.  I was too selfish and my son was way to enthusiastic about life.  God had other plans.  I became pregnant again, this time, I was 26 years old, going through a divorce and devastated.  I KNEW I couldn’t care for another child, and I KNEW I was too selfish to raise another child.

God blessed me with a beautiful redheaded blue-eyed baby this time.  And while his birth was traumatic (premature) and I didn’t see him for 5 days after his birth due to just total mixup at the hospital.  Things just fell apart, it was at Christmas and then my doctor left town, etc, etc.  I was too naive to understand what as happening.  My mom was out-of-town when I had him, I was alone, my husband wouldn’t answer the phone for me etc, etc, etc,

God finally placed us together, mom got there and my sister-in-law and when I woke up from the C-Section, my mom and dad, had managed to reach my aunt and she was the first person I saw when I woke up from the C-Section.  God’s plans.

While I know that God’s plan for me included thee two beautiful babies that grew up to be very independent, handsome, strong, young men.  Who now are building their own lives with their own families.

My husband and I also managed to get back together and added his two beautiful children to the mix, and now I am a mother of 5(including my niece)  and grandmother of 9!  God’s Plans!

That’s what Lisa’s book will give you.  The insight into her life with a weaving of God’ amazing plans!!  Isn’t he amazing!!!
