It’s Back to School Time!

My social media newsfeeds have been blowing up over the last few days with pictures of kids heading back to school.  I can’t believe it is the start of a new school year.  My favorite quote right now is, “The days are long, but the years are short.”  – Gretchen Rubin That seems so fitting […]

The Shoes

I sat across the waiting room from a mom that had an empty child’s wheelchair sitting in front of her.  In it, was a pair of sneakers for a little girl.  I couldn’t stop staring at those shoes.  They should have been someplace else. On the floor at Chuck E. Cheese. Next to the entrance […]

Where It All Began

“Mrs. Lassen, the umbilical cord was wrapped around your son’s ankles.”  I remember breathing a sigh of relief when the Neonatologist came in  the operating room and explained why my son, Tyler, was whisked away so quickly. I immediately thought to myself that her words were a relief because it would be much worse if […]

Super Mom….Fail!

Moms, do you remember bringing your newborn home from the hospital?  I was so in love with my babies that I felt like I was Supermom!  I could handle anything.  Those first few days I didn’t care about the lack of sleep.  I didn’t care that my nice clothes had been replaced with sweatpants and […]


“If you don’t do something with the remains of your baby within ten days, we will have to treat her like medical waste and dispose of it.” Can you imagine those words being said to a family that just days earlier delivered a stillborn full-term baby?  I was stunned to hear this grieving mom inform […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s Mother’s Day.  For years, I remember dreading this day.  My husband and I had been trying to have a baby and we were struggling with infertility.  It seemed like everywhere I turned, there was a teenager that could have a baby, but I could not.  Fast forward and I am now the proud mother […]

One Year Anniversary

One year ago, my husband and I finally said yes to the prompting of the Lord and started The Do More Foundation.  Since then, we have had the opportunity to help over 40 families.  Some of these families are dealing with a child that has severe medical conditions.  Some of these families were searching for […]
