When we couldn’t find a song for our second daughter, a friend shared JJ's song “When I’m With You”, and it made this over-due momma’s heart feel at peace while waiting patiently.

It wasn’t until after she was born though that we learned she had a defective umbilical cord and had a 75% chance of not making it my entire pregnancy. My mom was then diagnosed with cancer less than 2 months after Olive was born. Suddenly the words to "When I’m With You" meant so much more!

What started with that one song has turned into so many more - “Until You Came Along, Big World, BabyIf You Fall, Paving the Runway, and our new favorite, "Braver Still.”

Olive is now a healthy 9 month old, and my mom is going through treatment.
