Miscarriage: One Woman’s Story

 

Candace BakerClarksville, TN – Candace Baker is Texas born and bred.  Raised by a family of hard working, hard living Texas cattlemen.  

Her ‘Paw-Paw” was a cattle rancher, bull rider, calf roper, and rodeo clown.  

Her mother was a  competitive barrel racer, so it was not a surprise that Candace would follow in their footsteps.  She was riding horses, and winning championships almost before she could walk.

Tough as nails, with a full sized Texas attitude to match, Candace never felt like there was anything she couldn’t do. There was no obstacle she couldn’t overcome.  If you told her “no,” then you really had your hands full.
