Here We Go!!!!!

It's so difficult to know where to begin.  I should have been blogging for quite some time now but just never took the time to figure it out.  Thanks to my husband, our mom's, and my best friend Lindsay for the encouragement to begin ths blog.   My life as a happily married girl began on July 18, 2009.  My husband Trent and I have been together for a total of 7 years now. WOW how time flies.  Our wedding day was absolutely perfect.  Trent was so very handsome and the ceremony was everything we ever dreamed of.  Our parents helped us plan the most beautiful and special day and that's just what it was.  I was the happiest girl in the world.  Trent and I had many dreams.  Many of them being the same things most married couples want, a happy marriage, children, a nice home etc.  Over the past year or so we have accomplished alot.  Trent has a great job in Lake Charles and although we so want to be closer to our families we know we are blessed.  We live in a nice home and have two precious puppies that keep us company for the most part.  We need for nothing, although being human, we always have wants.  We serve a God that is all knowing and powerful and he will fulfill the desires of our hearts. 
     Soon after Trent and I were married I had a very strong desire to become a mother.  What woman doesn't?  We talked for months about having children and just wanted the timing to be right.  Once again, trying to control the timing when God would bless us in his own perfect time.  It was getting closer and closer to our one year anniversary and we had prayed that God would bless us with a baby when He saw fit.  Still we had questions about how we were going to do this own our own in South La. because our mothers are in North Louisiana.  Although we wanted to be close to our entire family it would be our mother's help that we missed the most.  In my opinion everyone needs their mother close when trying to learn to be a new mother themselves.  Trent and I both have magnificant mothers.  They had agreed to come help us anytime, day or night, when ever we may need them , although we are almost four hours away from home.  So the decision was made by us to try to begin our family.  This is where our real story begins.  We were ready to become parents, and God thought so too.


  1. Betsy & Trent, Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be MeMe to the most special two little boys, Easton & Parker. I will forever cherish the privilege I had of holding your beautiful twin boys and seeing their sweet faces. I am truly honored to be a witness to the remarkable Dignity and Grace you and Trent have shown while enduring the worse pain a couple can go through. Both of you are an inspiration to me. I know God will bless you with a house full of beautiful children and I look forward to meeting the brothers and sisters of our precious Angel Babies Easton & Parker McCoy. I love you both! Mom
