Her goal is to retire her husband from his job in 2yrs and have her daughter to be raised debt free!
In 2005, Shannon married the love of her life, Anthony McCoy. While they wanted children, it didn’t happen easily for them. After years of trying to conceive, they were finally successful in 2010. Unfortunately, at week 21 of her pregnancy, Shannon went into labor and had a baby girl who was stillborn. Her name was Zion Mariesha. This was so devastating and painful, yet Shannon kept her faith. 5 months later Shannon and Anthony conceived again. This time they brought home a beautiful daughter Hope Annabelle who is now 7yrs old.
The experience of giving birth to Zion helped Shannon to become a co-founder of Zion’s Garden. She is now a First Responder for women who experience child loss and has helped 20 women. She helps women through the hardest and most trying times in their lives by being a listening ear and providing resources for them to make it second by second. She believes that the loss of Zion gave her purpose and for that she gives God ALL the glory for ALL He has done!
