My name is Kiersten.
I've been with my partner for 9 years now.
We have two perfect and beautiful daughters together. Haylee Anne was born April 23, 2009 and Aubrey Lynn was born May 22, 2012. They are my world :)
I am an LPN, however I recently moved and decided to be a SAHM for the sake of my kids. I am living proof it IS possible to be a teen parent and still graduate college. I know LPN isn't much to most people, but I am very proud of myself for doing it and proving statistics wrong (something like less than 3% of teen moms graduate college before age 30). I am not finished either. I have full intentions of continuing on to become an RN. It's my dream to work on a L&D floor, and one day I aspire to be a Lactation Consultant also.
I breastfed my daughter for 18 months, which I feel was a great accomplishment for me.
Pre-pregnancy weight? 99lbs
