how did circumcision become an important issue for you? (what a fun first question! )

Wow, you don't say much but there is lots there!

How did it come about that all your kids are D's?

Widowed at 23... yikes. How long had you been married?
I got married at 18 and wondered if my risk-taking husband would be around for long... Turns out we've lasted 17 years so far.

How long have you been in Altanta and what do you like about living there?

How long have you been with your husband, and how did you meet? Was it difficult to think about marrying again?

I have the same mix as you--boy, boy, girl, boy--and our kids seem about the same ages...

do you enjoy this lineup? How do your kids get along? what is the dynamic (who is the leader, loudest, etc)?

It became important when I discovered my first child had a penis. The more I researched, the more appalled I became.

Dylan is kinda named after my mom. She is Diana Lynn. D Lynn..haha, get it? Come to find out, Dylan means "Born of the Sea" and Dylan was born on earth day. Ironic, dontch think?
Devon sort of went well with Dylan
Dorothy was my grandma that died in '89
And I couldn't have an odd ball and I liked Derek...

Been married since May 16, '09
My late husband and I were 2 months short of 2 years so my 2 year anniversary to Mark will be HUGE!

Been in ATL since March 2, 2009. I was driving down here for the final time the 1 year anniversary of DH's death. Was very bitter sweet.
I love it here. It's warm (mer than Cincinnati) and it seems busy. Also, cost of living in GA seems so much cheaper.

The line up seems good. I have kiddos in all stages of young childhood. They get along great though we have lots of chaos sometimes.
Dylan is the boss (or so he thinks) Devon is the loudest, and Dorothy is kinda starting to take after Devon.

Registered Medical Assistant. I am that annoying person at the doctors office that does all your vitals and makes you wait for hours for the doctor. I also know how to draw blood and some insurance billing.


God, how I miss the doctor's office.

I have to ask...how did he die? I can't imagine what that must have been like for you...you must constantly be amazed by the path your life has taken.

He was on Methadone for chronic back problems. We went to bed one night, and the next morning I woke up with him in my bed. Postmortem changes had already taken place. It was bad. I had nightmares about it for a long time.

And yes, I am amazed everyday. Mark was widowed in the same way 5 months before I was. Derek truly is our miracle.
