The Berns Sisters

The last couple of weeks, I have been dedicating my time to doing much reading and research, therefore I've not had the time to post. I am working on several projects and am hoping to share more about them very soon. One of them includes putting together my memoirs, my life as a burn survivor. This is a very sensitive topic for me, but I need to face it sometime.

I was delighted earlier this year when I learned of the Berns sisters. Triplets, who like me have suffered 3rd degree burns over a large area of their bodies. They are marked by scars from 20 years ago. Here is a bit of their journey, an experiment with a new laser treatment as documented by the Today Show:

About Me

My photo
I am a 30-something year old mother of three. My eldest is about to complete his first year of school...Kindergarten! I thought that was going to be the most difficult challenge this year. I was wrong. I am also mom to Two in Diapers (hence the name of this blog). Balancing life is a struggle, and most often, I have had to put many of my passions on hold. My husband is an angel, and if it weren't for him (he being who he is), I don't know how I would survive. Little by little, I am trying to put everything back in order. The last 24 months have been very rocky. It started with my baby sister being diagnosed with cancer, shortly followed by my father's death. Over the months, we have been slammed time after time by devastating news, but we are surviving as a family. I hope you will join me as I try to piece the story together, both past and present.
