Growing Friendships in The Classroom


One of the topics I am asked about often is social skills.  The importance of social learning for all children, but especially children with hidden challenges & special needs cannot be emphasized enough.


In many of my adaptive yoga programs I've observed not only the 'bringing together' of mind and body, but also the bringing together of friendships, some unlikely on the surface at first, but then watching them growing spontaneously out of small groups sessions,…

Down Wit Dat

In January of this year, I found out that one of the twins that I was carrying had AVSD (Atrioventricular Septal Defect) and that along with this, probably had a chromosomal disorder.

My husband and I were devastated.

Mothers and Daughters

Sometimes I wonder if I am screwing up my kids or if they are screwing up me.  A part of me has always thought that somehow my mother’s issues became my issues, and as hard as I try not to be like my mother…I’ve become my mother.  Frankly, I think mothers are the reason therapists have…

Sari and Her Ray of Sunshine

There are certain people you come across in life who just always make you smile.  They are able to see the glass as half full and bring positivity wherever they go -- kinda like a ray of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day.  You can't help but to admire and respect these people cause they make you want to be a better person yourself.


My friend, Sari, is one of these amazing people.  I am in constant awe of her optimism, courage and strength.  She somehow juggles three kids,…

Stress Fracture

Stress fractures aren’t an actual break in the bone and you can’t really see them on an x-ray, but they are incredibly painful and if not treated, they can create more complex problems later.

I have a stress fracture right now, but it isn’t in my bones.

It is in my…

Healing Hands of a Sister

You can never truly understand a person until you have walked a mile in their shoes.  I don’t know what it’s like to be adopted, or to be given up at birth, and I don’t know what it’s like to have reactive attachment disorder (RAD).

The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

As I have confessed here a number of times, I haven’t always been able to write.  Well, I’ve always been able to write, I just didn’t have any confidence in my writing abilities.  When I was working in the corporate world, if I was required to write a letter, I would procrastinate for days until I made myself sit down at my computer and write.

Two More Days...But Who's Counting?

Two more days until the girls go back to school.  Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun. 

It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder.  At times, it has been a nightmare.

Tilting at Windmills


The hardest thing about being a parent of special needs children is…

Wow, I can’t tell you what the hardest thing is because it keeps changing. When it was just Elliott with her RAD, there was a small chance I could keep all the balls in the air. I had a fairly good handle on her current issues and how she was handling them. She has made great progress over the last 10 months, but she still has her moments.

Long Term Concerns & Wishes

I spent the better part of my afternoon filling out a school application for Norrin. One application. Nine pages long. I took my time, printed as neatly as possible - even at the end, as my wrist began to ache. I needed his application to be perfect; the application was…

Traveling with special diets

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

My Two Day Extravaganza (Part 1)

For This stay at home mom/nanny it is quite a treat to be able to go to a
comedy show and Ball in the same weekend. Since most of my weekends are
spent playing catch up on loads of laundry, dishes or anything else
that needs to be done over the weekend, this Cinderella actually had the
chance to put make up on, dress cute and laugh and drink a little too
much. (Read More)

The Truth Hurts

Santa’s not coming to our house this Christmas. Earlier in the year we decided to drop the bomb and tell “J” the truth. It’s been a long year. Telling “J” the “truth” about Santa has been an eye-opener to us about where “J” functions.

Like many people with special needs “J” really struggles with conceptualizing. He is extremely literal. Wrapping his brain around the fact that Santa is not “real” has been nearly impossible and has given us so much insight to how his brain works and how… Continue

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
