  • Mother of eight children. 
  • Wife to a computer geek, but cool, husband.
  • Married for 12 years.

  1. Dear Melinda, I continue to be in awe of you, more each year. You have a beautiful family. It did sadden me to read that you fear dying in childbirth. Please, please don't let that happen to you. It would be criminal, and an unspeakable loss to the children you have. I really enjoy your blog, loved seeing pictures of your Dad, sorry your Mom is no longer alive. Take care, and love, Eileen (Rob's Mom) evogt1@yahoo.com
