Grace and the working mom

As a mom of a little NICU baby girl, I spent about a year in and out of the hospitals with her as she went through multiple surgeries, countless doctor visits and check-ups and the usually newborn checks.

Home Sweet Indiana

Have we told you about the state we get to call home? I was born and raised in Northwest Indiana, about 40 minutes southeast of Chicago.
