About me.

I’m Jenn and I’m raising 2 little girls, Ella and Amelia, by myself.  My husband, Stephen, was diagnosed in May 2007 with a rare soft-tissue neuro sarcoma.  He died in October 2007 at the age of 32.  We had been together for 6 short years. We also had a son, Will, born in 2002 who got sick at 13 days old and lived to 11 months old and died in 2003. This is the hand I have been dealt.

I blog for me.  I blog because I loathe support groups.  It’s sad sometimes and crazy and funny.  But the voice is my own and it’s always true.

  1. Jenn,
    I blog for me, too, because I also loathe support groups. My tragedies are nothing compared to yours, but they are mine (even if frequently of my own making). Writing is how I sort it all out, and I try to find the humor in all but the darkest of topics. I adore your blog for its humor and hope, for the ability to pay tribute to Stephen and Will without wallowing in pity (though I think you need to find a way to claim your right to do that sometimes). You are humorous and uplifting, and I wish you to find a path to the joy in life that has thus far been cut too short. Warm blog-friend hugs to you and the girls.

  3. Just to be trite and surfacy for a moment, here, my name is also Jenn and I have a daughter named Ella and a son named Will. I also have a little Julia and a Sam in my life. Love the name Amelia, too! An interesting coincidence, I thought. And now, I hunker down to read this interesting blog of yours….
