Hi! I'm Stephanie...
My name is Stephanie Perry. I was born on Galveston Island in the middle of a hurricane, which I think suits my personality well. I never like to shy away from a challenge and I’m always pushing to better myself even if it means stepping out of my comfort zone. Growing up in Houston, Texas, I had quite a rocky upbringing, enduring most things a child should never go through. But God has his own ways of balancing our pains, as I found myself to have been extremely blessed as an adult. I couldn’t ask more for what all I have today after all these years. Today, I am happily married to my amazing husband and life is beautiful with my five boys. I don’t regret one thing thats happened to me, or any decision I have made as it has molded the person I am today.
In 2007 I met my husband, Will and my amazing “bonus son” Grant. That is when things began to change for me. He saw me for the person I was, not for what I had been through. After marrying in 2009, we became pregnant with twins. A boy and a girl. I thought life couldn’t get any better, but towards the end of 2009, an incident took place in my life that pushed something in the woman in me to emerge stronger than ever before. My twin newborns were born prematurely the same year and passed shortly after their birth. As I look back, I feel that it was the hardest thing I ever endured in my life. Going through all of the hardships in life, I have only come out of them stronger and more blessed than ever, and this is part of what inspires me to want to give back. Over the next several years of enduring infertility procedures, I was blessed with a baby boy in 2011, twin boys in 2013, and with the help of an amazing surrogate, another baby boy in 2017. All during this time of having and raising babies, I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology, with a minor in Criminal Justice at Sam Houston State University. Again, I think all of these events molded who I am today and allowed me to be a stronger woman and mother.
