My writing is therapy for me. Over 13 years ago we added another child to our family of 4. He was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder from his birth mom drinking while she was pregnant. Our family has had so many ups and downs but I thank God for every lesson I have learned from being a mom, wife, and mom of a special needs child.
I’m married to my high school sweetheart and couldn’t be happier. We are working on 27 years. I am so blessed and honored to be the adoptive mom of 3 wonderful children. My oldest two, 19 and 16 are so inspiring to me in the way they deal with our youngest behavioral issues. They are so understanding with him and his daily challenges.
Over the past 13 years I have been fortunate enough to work with several non profit organizations where I have been able to help and support other parents who have children with severe behavioral problems and doing so I feel I have given them the hope that I have for my son’s future.
We are quickly moving into a new stage in our lives this year, my 19-year-old is currently attending college and he is majoring in Special Education. My 16-year-old Kaitlyn is now driving me everywhere we go. Things change so fast. Life is such a fast ride you wouldn’t believe it if you didn’t experience it.
Thank you for taking a few minutes to learn about our family and as you read my articles you will see that with every challenge we have faced we have been rewarded beyond anything we could have hoped for.
