My speech was called What If. I talked about missing children with more passion than I had ever felt. I knew the minute that speech was over something was going to change in my life but I had no idea of what or when.
Fast forward a year or so...
It was a thusday night and tribal council was about to take place on survivor. I had been in and out of the hospital for over a week. Every night I would drive myself (lol yes I like to be in control)to spend the night listening to my babys heartbeat and feeling her move inside. Samantha Danielle Roberts-Wolford is her name. She is named after Samantha Runnion and Danielle Van dam. Two of the children I researched for my speech. Both of those precious children had been murdered. Sami is the most amazing gift life has given me. A gift from God! I start my every day by telling Sami I love her and thank God for her. I remind her how beautiful, smart, and precious she is. I tell her how proud I am of her.
Am I perfect? Far from it! But I have came to believe that the most precious gifts will appear in ways we nvr imagined. I have wanted to be a mommy since I can remember. I didn't know when but I knew it would happen.
First part of the dream complete. Now to change the world through the eyes of Sami Moink. :o)

Sami's Big Day is my first children's book. It is based on the moink characters. I started working on the moinks Jan 07, after mom died. My life would never be the same. My big brother died in July 04. I was forced to withdrawal from school. I was studying to become a k-6 teacher. My brain almost worked back then. Lol Somehow I managed to maintain a 3.5 avg and give a speech that would forever change my life.
