Hey there! I’m so glad you’re here. My name is Maria and I am a 27-year-old stay at home mom born and raised in Texas. I live with my boyfriend of 6 years, Armando (a.k.a BJ) and together we have a beautiful 2-year-old daughter, Scarlett Rain. I am a daughter of Christ. I believe God walks us through different seasons in life in order to teach us and also help us teach others. I believe in taking every day, one day at a time. I am so excited to share with you all my little pieces of life on this earth and I hope you all enjoy it. This blog has been a long time coming and I am so happy you’ve found it!
Treasure of Motherhood the story behind my blog.
I am proud preemie mom who loves to connect with and get to know fellow preemie/NICU moms. When I was pregnant with my one and only child, and was lying in the hospital on bed rest, I spent a lot of time scouring the internet for NICU mom resources to help me prepare for the journey to come. Unfortunately, I didn’t a lot out there, so I have since made it my mission to be a voice and spread awareness for NICU/Preemie Mamas & families and offer support and guidance along the way. As a NICU mom you experience a lot of the unexpected & once you’re in the club you’re IN IT. It’s not a club anyone hopes to be apart of – but it’s the hand we are dealt so let’s make the most of it!
Here on my blog I share:
+ Helpful Advice for NICU Families & How to Get Through Your Journey
+Life After NICU – ie. transitional tips for life after NICU, how to support a NICU family during their stay & ways to GIVE BACK to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) once you’ve left
+What #Preemiehood is like – What is my thriving tiny warrior princess up to now?
Being a preemie mom doesn’t mean I am excluded from a lot of the same motherhood experiences most other moms get to have – my motherhood journey just started out a little differently. So along with NICU/Preemie Mom content you’ll also see posts on:
+ Preemiehood (the only form of Motherhood I know)
+ Physical and Mental Health – How I cope with Anxiety, Thyroid Issues and More
+ Products I love as both a Woman & a mother
+Books I am an avid reader and love talking about books
+Life in general!
I hope that you find comfort in this space, a friend in me and community of mama’s who are all here to support one another in this crazy thing called Motherhood. Whether you are a NICU mama, Preemie Mama, family of a NICU warrior or just a MAMA – I am so happy to have you here & hope you find something that tickles your fancy.
