Where Do I Start?

Hi, I'm Katie, welcome to my first blog entry!

I don't know if I should give you my life story now, otherwise, the mystery will be gone and you might not want to read about me anymore :)


But in the interest of some basic disclosure, here are some "fun" facts so that you will know what's going on, thus far in "2.0, Katie's Life!" Okay, that was my first lie to you, Internet, they really aren't fun.

  • I went to, and graduated from, The College of William and Mary
  • I am PROUD PROUD PROUD mommy
  • I am Sister in Kappa Kappa Gamma; So happy that I am a....
  • My family is VERY Baptist. I was very Baptist as well, but for the past couple of years I've been having some crises of faith. I'm hoping to resolve this and find my way back again.
  • I was in Law School when I got pregnant with my Baby
  • I didn't get pregnant on purpose.
  • I had dated Baby Daddy for years but it was not an ideal situation.
  • I'm no longer in law school- the two just weren't compatible
  • I don't know if I'm going to go back to LS, I feel like I've changed a lot since I've become a mother, and I'm not sure being a lawyer is what will make me happy, professionally speaking.
  • I'm a single parent, no husband, or boyfriend. My parents, while initially despondent over "the end of my life," really have been such a tremendous help, and I couldn't have made this far without them.
  • Baby's other grandparents are also very involved in her life as well as her Parental Great-Grandparents. (PGGP's)
  • I still have great plans for my life; I don't think it's over because I chose to have a baby.
  • I chose to have my Baby, but had it not been for the hiccups I might have done the other thing.
  • No one wanted me to have her and I thought about maybe not having her, but at my doctor's appointment the tech told me the baby was having hiccups and they'd have to wait for them to stop to get an accurate reading. I get the hiccups all time, a few times a week, and it was in that moment that I knew she was mine. I burst into tears and got up and left.
  • That was the day my life changed, February 13, 2007; I was at peace with my decision, I was resolved.
  • And thank the Heavenly Father I had that resolve, because I needed it. It was NOT pretty when I told Baby Daddy I was keeping her.
  • I broke my parents' hearts when I told them about the baby. But in that moment, the only thing that I could think was "I am a MOTHER," my job is to protect this little peanut who is making me puke every 10 minutes. Me, Katie, a mommy.
  • I used to be a Republican, a hardcore Republican. But, I think that's changing.
  • I worry a lot about failure now that I've let so many people down. I used to be the Golden Child, the Child of Promise, and I hate how people look at me now; like I've wasted my life, like I'm never going to amount to anything anymore. It keeps me trying from trying anything new- I don't think I could handle my parents being ashamed of me again.
  • Despite the fact that Baby Daddy and I will never be a couple again, I really like, and get along well with his whole family, which is something that I feel is super important for Baby.

I think that's enough to get the ball rolling on my story. I'm just a single mother trying to be enough for my daughter.

I really enjoyed reading your story. It's amazing how the decisions we make in life, big and small, can have such an impact on everyone and everything around us. I know you made the right decision and you should be extremely proud of yourself for doing so. Too much these days, people always look for the easy way out. I like seeing fighters like you that take the leap and make it happen.
I know that government has been so disappointing lately that it's hard to tell what is real but don't give up on the Republican Party. We didn't become the greatest country in the world on Socialist principles and this type of "Change" surely won't do anything to better our nation. Please stay conservative and live the AMERICAN Dream.

I just found your blog...I'm also a single mom. I'm looking forward to reading more of your story and getting to know you better!

I really don't like the "almost" a success story. You're still at the beginning of your story. Something unexpected and wonderful has happened to you. Spenser is another one of your successes. She is beautiful and lucky to have Katie W. as her mom. So your story took a turn that you hadn't had planned since the 9th grade - most good stories do!
