Cortney Hendrix candidly admitted that becoming pregnant only 10½ months postpartum was not in her initial plans, but she gracefully embraced the unexpected. “I’m just really lucky.

In moments of fatigue and trepidation, Hendrix has found strength in cherishing her blessings. As she put it, “I was scared. I was tired. I am tired. There are many days where I panic at the thought of two, and many days I am thrilled because the children will be so close in age.”
