My name is La-Donia. This is my journey as a first time mom and how yarning over my sweet baby saved me.
My husband Michael and I had been together for 8 years and married for 2 years before we decided that our family should grow beyond our two dogs. In November 2013 we moved to Cincinnati, bought a new home and within 5 months we were pregnant. While we were thrilled, we were naive about our future with this new baby.
As a new mom in a new city with no friends or family, my first year with my sweet girl was hard. I lost my identity in motherhood.
My sweet baby inspired me to give birth again. This time to an idea. Sweetbabybeanie was born. I found myself in making beanies for my sweet baby and for those sweet babies in need.
Sweetbabybeanie is my take on motherhood, self discovery, and purpose.
Thank you for joining me.
