Omaha Moms Blog :: Introducing Sarah


I grew up in South Omaha and have lived in the Omaha area for my entire life (except for when I was in school at UNL). I have so many great childhood memories that have Omaha written all over them. Everything from visiting the Joslyn Art Museum, trips to the zoo, and taking in College World Series games with my dad. Omaha is a part of me.

As I grew up, I began to appreciate the other parts of Omaha; the local restaurants, the small businesses that form our backbone, as well as, the pretty great music scene. I love that Omaha has bigger city amenities but somehow maintains the small town feeling.

I really can’t imagine raising my kids any where else. Where else can you find a world class zoo, a fantastic children’s museum, and Runza?!? I want my children to grow up with the Omaha area woven into their story as it is in mine. I want them to grow up in a city that feels like a town.


I am Mom to a small crew of little boys. Turner is 7, Camden is 5, Bennett would be 3, and Easton is 1. Turner is so kind-hearted and the best oldest child that I could have asked for! Camden is hilarious and keeps us on our toes! Bennett is our angel baby and was such a fighter! He passed away shortly after he was born in 2014. Easton is our Rainbow baby that we never thought we’d get! He is a determined little guy and works hard to keep up with his big brothers!

I grew up with mostly sisters, so being surrounded by boys is a whole new world for me (even our dog is a boy), but I love all of the noise and most of the chaos. There’s never a dull moment around here! I really feel like I was born to be a mom. I love the sense of pride that I feel when my children accomplish something they’ve been working so hard on.  My joy can be found in hugs, cuddles, and little kid jokes.

While I absolutely love being a mom, there are times when it’s challenging, too. I think my biggest challenge is keeping Bennett’s memory alive for our other sons and our family. When you lose a child, you lose all of your future hopes and dreams for that child and you have to reformat your hopes and dreams for your family unit. It’s been over three years since Bennett passed away and yet I still face this on a daily basis and I’m sure that I will for the rest of my life.

Being a SAHM with a husband that travels frequently, creates a whole other level of struggles! Sometimes, when Adam is out of town, we go to Target just so that I can talk to other adults face to face!


I am looking forward to being a contributor to Omaha Moms Blog! I love the idea of a blog for moms in the Omaha area that’s written by moms in the Omaha area. Parenting can sometimes feel so lonely and it will be great to be able to connect with other moms that are going through similar stages and phases of this motherhood thing.

I want to help other loss moms realize that they’re not alone and provide a glimpse into what life is like for those of us living with the loss of our children. Losing Bennett has changed the very core of me.  I really believe that experience has helped me create a somewhat unique viewpoint of the world. It literally colors every aspect of my life as a mom, wife, and human being. I really hope to be able to display that in my writing.

On top of that, I think that being a boy mom has added a special flavor to my story. I guarantee I’ll have plenty of anecdotes and funny tidbits of this loud, crazy, sometimes stinky world of mine!!


Sarah has lived in the Omaha area her entire life. She currently lives in Papillion with her husband, Adam and their sons Turner, Camden, and Easton. Their son, Bennett, passed away shortly after his birth and is a cherished member of the family’s daily life. Currently a homeschooling stay at home mom, Sarah loves the hustle and bustle of life with all of her boys! There’s never a quiet moment! She loves baseball, football, reading, traveling (mostly to Disney World), Harry Potter, pretending to be organized with the help of her planner and long, quiet Starbucks enhanced walks around Target!


  1. Sarah- Very brave of you to touch on Infant Loss. It must be a difficult piece at times to write, but the contribution will connect with so many. I look forward to your future posts. Congrats on this new adventure!

  2. Sarah–I have a Camden as well. Is yours the orneriest? Mine sure is. 🙂 I’m looking forward to this writing journey with amazing moms such as yourself.

  3. Sarah, your story is incredibly touching. I can’t wait to hear more about your perspective!

  4. Connection with other moms is so important in maintaining perspective on our parenting role. I can relate to the long walks around Target with a cup of liquid rejuvenation!

  5. Sarah, Thank you for sharing. I’m sure you are an inspiration and an encouragement to many because of what you have endured. I have enjoyed reading your posts.
