I lost a very special lady in my life. Eight years ago today my grandmother Madeline Rose Ninni passed away from emphysema. It was eight years ago today that I sat in her bedroom and watch her slip further and further away from us...as she was preparing to get ready to live with the angels. Eight years later and she is still my Guardian angel. Eight years later I still feel her presents and still carry the memories. Eight years ago today she was called to God to help him to bring me my daughter I have today. She will forever be...the Greatest Grandmother in the world!
I'm Brooke Matthews. I was born in 1972 to Joanne Ninni and Brooke Schaich. I was born with pulmonary atrisa and developed scoliosis at a young age. I grew up being raised with my mom and step dad Timothy Reber. I had 3 sisters and 1 brother. I had 4 open heart surgeries,hernia surgery,tubal pregnancy,endocarditis,and TB through out my life. I'm still amazed that I am still here at the age of 35,with 2 adorable children. I've went through a bad marriage and survived to remarry one great man. We married Nov. 4th 1995. In Jan. 1999 we where blessed with a 2 year old little boy,through foster care. He is now 11 years old and is a sweet boy. In Nov. 2002 we where blessed again with a 1 month old baby girl,through foster care. She came home to us from the NICU,on Dec. 2nd,or sons birthday. She is now 5 and a handful.
