In May 2010, I finally admitted what I knew for quite some time. My heart was no longer in my program, and my priorities had shifted. My life’s calling, for now, is to nurture my family. I’m now happily raising my family and reaching toward other goals. I’m not giving up but definitely delaying.
Erica G's Life List

5. make our wedding photo album
6. move to the country

When I began this goal, I was waiting for Baby #2. His birth was unmedicated as planned. It was a beautiful experience. The only thing that wasn’t completely natural was the breaking of the water. Now, we’re expecting #3. Hoping for a natural birth again!
I am proud to announce that I officially met this goal on March 3, 2008. It took just under a year for me to complete the accreditation process. I’ve formed wonderful friendships through it all.
