I’ve had blogs before and nothing ever felt just right. I’ve talked about my interest, my opinions, my love for various things and then about absolutely nothing that made any sense and just could never get there. Finally with one day into 2018 and I’ve figured it out. There is one thing that has been consistent that I talk about all the time on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts – My daughter. So with a mix of talking about her and talking about all things…Me, I feel like I’ve finally found my place in the blogging world and I’m hoping to bring awareness to her issues and also say “Hello World”, We are here and have things to say that matter too.
I’ll start with Morgan since the name of the blog is…Morgan & Me. Morgan is my beautiful daughter. My first and only child right now born prematurely in 2015. Yes…just typing the word premature brings back all these stories and memories and things I’m dying to share with everyone. She’s had a tough road but my kid…is resilient and astounding. She amazes me everyday and now at 2 1/2 we are reaching new levels of amazement. She’s fantastic and just a whole hell of a lot better than I ever was. You’ll see so much of her, it’ll probably make you sick but she’s the reason, I want to write again and get our story out to the world. It’s important! Her story is important and other Preemie Moms and people in general need to know what these kids go thru and well – what the parents go thru too. So that’s a little about Morgan. Then there is…Me.
Well, I’m L’Erin. Mostly now known as Morgan’s Mom (I’ll end most of my blogs for her with that signature) but I’m a 30 year old, currently married but seperated (long story which I’ll explain soon), living in Washington, DC (I’m native to the city & I’ll brag about that a lot), working, living, loving, and crazy sometimes beautiful black woman. I’m in graduate school and working on a degree in Women & Gender Studies – which I’m pretty darn proud and excited about. I’m one of those people that always has a million ideas and can rarely get them articulated or out into the cosmos correctly but I’m working on it. I’m constantly working on being a better person and so much has happened that I want to share and get advice on that this experience will be hopefully everything I’ve felt I was missing over the last few years.
This blogs hope will be to inspire, educate, evaluate, create, aspire and encourage people from all walks of life. Welcome to our world!
