Tiffany Puerto

Tiffany grew up in Asia for most of her life because her parents were missionaries for over 35 years. She returned to the US for college in the late 1990's. She has lived in Memphis for 19 years, 18 of which she has been married to Marco, who is originally from Honduras. They have been blessed with 3 kids: Luke (February 2003), Lilia (May 2004), and Daniel (2012). Daniel is a miracle baby, born at 29 weeks. He was diagnosed with SPD, Sensory Processing Disorder, at the age of 2 and continues to receive OT twice a week. She homeschools all 3 of them, so she doesn’t have much free time for hobbies or down time. She enjoys organizing, exercising, and watching TV when she gets the opportunity.

World Prematurity Day

  On this day, where we bring awareness to premature births, I find myself full of differing emotions. Over five years ago, after a very tumultuous  pregnancy, the doctors decided to do an emergency C-section. It...
