Introduction thread!

It seems like we have quite a few new faces here, which I love!!!

New members and old members a like, feel free to introduce yourself! I will start.

I am a 36 year old single parent. By single I mean that I live alone and parent alone. I am not single relationship wise though, I have been in a relationship for about 8 years with a nice guy.

I am in school for my Bachelors in Elementary Ed with a concentration in Special Education. Part of my desire to enter into this field is because I seer how high need it is of professionals who are kind, compassionate and caring people.

I have two children, Mini who is 16 and Bub who is 10. They both have special needs but that doesn't define who they are. Mini is funny, silly, smart and amazingly creative. Bub is a tender heart, intelligent, thoughtful and "the man" according to him. ;)

If you have any questions feel fee to ask! And of course I would love to read your intro as well!

      I'm Morgan, 22 (almost 23) years old. I've been married to my husband, Trevor (who is 23, almost 24 years old), since October 2012 though we've been together since October of 2008. We have one child together so far, a little girl: Nina. We were all born in Missouri, though because my husband is in the Navy, we're moved several times, and probably will again. We hope to have at least one more kid, maybe two more, but hopefully at least a little boy. I don't go to college right now, and I'm a SAHM. One day I'd like to go to college for a degree of some sort in computers or digital art. We're big fans of reading and gaming and playing outside.

          My name is Alissa, first time mom to such an amazing blessing, Charlie. His dad and I have been together for about a year and a half. We live in Montana. He works for the railroad and I work part time from home as a hostess here at moms.com. Not sure if we'll have more children or not. Neither of us thought we could have kids at this point (I'm 34, he's 47) so I leave that in God's hands.

            My name is Heidi Lockwood, I am a stay at home mom to a beautiful little girl who just turned two. I have been married to my husband for 2 and a half years. My husband just became an officer in the army in may. I'm excited to be moving next march even though we are not sure where yet. We are a by-racial couple. I believe in God. I also recently became a Mary Kay consultant. I would love to make some new friends in my area.

                I am Carissa, a first time mother to my 7 week old son Seth. I am not married to the father but I hope to be eventually. He also has a 5 year old daughter whom we see every other weekend. It is extremely stressful most of the time because the ex is very difficult and hates both him and I. I am currently in school for teaching and I am moving in with my parents until I know for sure me and my significant other will be able to work things out. I love him but I have a lot of troubles with our relationship. All in all I love this site and hope to continue meeting and learning from other mommies!

                  I'm Jenelle, I'm 32, been separated from my husband going on 4 yrs now, we have an 11 yr old daughter that he started seeing more now that I'm pregnant. Im 34 weeks pregnant with my son, he has a different father, that I am not in a relationship with and never really was. This pregnancy was not intentional and I expect that I will most likely be raising this one alone. I am not in a relationship at all and haven't really been into anything more than casual dating since my husband and I separated. I still live in the same area I've lived all my life. It's just me and my daughter, though my brother has been staying with us the last few months while he sorts his life out.

                      I'm 35 and having my first baby in 4 weeks. I'm super excited and it almost feels like I'm in a fantasy world. I've always wanted to be a mom, and I never thought it would happen to me. I'm in a wonderful relationship with Erik and he's a complete package with 2 older kids and another surprise daughter that is a toddler from a previous relationship. Since meeting Erik 2 years ago, life is always interesting and I'm finding myself pursuing interests that I wouldn't have otherwise.

                      I have a career track in banking and my educational background is in behavioral health. I'm looking into a paralegal certificate or associates degree because I'm interested in the legal aspect of banking and just law in general.

                      I hope to become a working career mom but would be content as a stay at home mom pending on whether Erik can keep us afloat by the time I'm all healed up from delivering the baby. I'd like to have 2 more kids of my own to make our family complete. I'd like at least 1 boy, but I'm happy to be blessed with whatever God gives me.

                          I'm Karlea, and I'm engaged to the man of my dreams, we've been together for 5 years now. Love him so much. We have our sweet little James Royal who just turned 1 on June 1st. James is such a sweetheart, he loves giving hugs and snuggle time. Boy is he a snuggle bug, just like his daddy. My fiance David, is a mechanic and I'm attending online school through WGU to get my B.A. in Special Education. James was an unexpected but exciting surprise to both of us <3 David actually proposed to me on March 11,2014 saying that was the day our lives officially changed and he wanted to start our new life off right. That was the date last year that we found out we were officially pregnant. David and I are getting married next August (2015) and James is going to be our ring bearer/ 2nd best man.

                            I'm Theresa, mommy to 8 ages 17 down to 3. My husband and I will be married 20 years this summer. Woo hoo! Big milestone according to our oldest! ;) We homeschool, have a farm and I work as a blogger, VA, hostess here at Moms.com and have 2 paper routes to help make ends meet since my husband is currently unemployed.

                            I am also exploring the idea of resuming my midwifery studies and am apprenticing with a midwife for a trial period while I make my decision.

                                  I'm Veronica. 21. I'm pregnant with my first kid. He's due 9/23. I'm married to my boyfriend of 4 years, 3/8/14. He's 25.

                                  I found out I was pregnant the day I was supposed to leave for boot camp. I was going to join the navy.

                                  Right now, my husband and I are taking it one day at a time, getting to know each other better, and trying to get our lives together for baby Zion.

                                  What did I miss?
