Moms of the World Unite!
Updated: Oct 16, 2022
Welcome to My Blog! I am so excited to have you here and hope you will stick around a while longer. My name is Martina Heid and I am married to Doug Heid. We live in Indianapolis, Indiana and have been married for 29 years and 7 months. When we married we each had two kids and then had one more together (Yours, mine and ours)! In 2011, we were called to provide a home for 3 children from one family. We brought them home and adopted them officially in January 2012. Their birth mother got pregnant again and contacted us about adopting that baby as well and we did in September 2012 when he was one month old. So, in case you lost count that is a total of 9 kids! We also have 9 grandkids, consisting of 7 grandsons and 2 granddaughters. Two of the sons we adopted are on the spectrum with one being severe, nonverbal and the other being high functioning. I can say when I was a little girl thinking about marriage and having kids when I got older, I would have never dreamed of my life being what it is today. However, I know God has other plans for us and we have embraced it with all of our hearts and feel so amazingly blessed to have our family. Its a lot and others always say "I don't know how you do it", my reply is always "I don't, it's God who puts my two feet on the ground everyday and gives me the strength to get up and do it all over again!".
With this blog, I hope to encourage others, provide information that will help others and be a place where others will see that they are not alone in this world! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you'd like me to discuss and I will happily reply!
As mothers we have to unite and encourage one another daily. None of us are perfect and we never will be. It is so important to empower each other so that we know we are not alone in this mixed up, crazy world!
