My twins! I've had other blogs before but none of them have meant so much to me like this one does.
I think most of it has to do with I love photography, and I need a place to post all these pictures.
So I guess  that's why I really started.

That is a GREAT reason to be inspired.  I think that when you are really passionate about a subject of any kind, you're more likely to stick with it and give it your best.  Best of luck to you!  I'm going to head on over to see all your pictures now!

I wanted to document my thoughts, learning and journey with my 2 children. It is also a way of re-connecting with people I have lost contact with due to parenting, if you get what I mean? Writing helps to keep my mind more active and I thought it's best not to loose touch with writing if I intend to homeschool my children!

Those are all great reasons Felicia.  Motherhood sure gives a lot to write about doesn't it?  And it's a great way to journal and connect with others I agree.  Thanks so much for your response!!


After I survived the first year of having a child with special needs I decided I wanted to share my journey with others. A friend and fellow special needs mom encouraged me to start a blog it was her blog afterall that helped me find my way to acceptance in my new reality. After I began blogging I realized how much I love it and the best reward is the number of families I have encouraged and have been able to connect to support groups. It's so important for people to realize that having a child with special needs changes your life, it's hard, it's overwhelming but if you accept to move forward you will have a normal life again. It's just a different normal, your normal. And it's a wonderful way to document my life. 

Thank you Charity for your comment and for your blog as well.  Your child is a gift to you and your blog is a gift to the world!  I think it's wonderful that you are willing to share both your struggles and your triumphs.  No doubt your words will be a source of inspiration and comfort to many.

Again, thank you for comment.  I look forward to reading your posts!

Another Mom Hat: High School Choice Researcher

We've come to that moment of parenthood that came much too quickly for my preference, but nevertheless, it's here. We are now looking into high schools for my first-born. I've always been a private-school, Catholic school kid & parent so now we're transitioning to the public school system. I've decided to go out of my comfort zone because we're fortunate to belong to an awesome school district with great high school pathway options. I've done some outside research & now it's a matter…

Motherhood is a Learning Journey


...This week has been a true test of my sheer will and strength as a mother--sending my 13-year-old, my first-born off on a 5-day retreat miles away, off the grid---no contact! It's been emotional--up & down--happy for him, worried for him, excited for him then missing him. Very much missing him.  And I survived. My Huz has survived (barely) & his younger brother (very bonded to him) also survived.  We missed him SO SO much!! But we love him and want him to experience…
