Did you know that October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month? There are over 400,000 living with Down syndrome in the United States. Down syndrome occurs when an individual has three, rather than two, copies Continue
of the 21st chromosome. This additional genetic material alters the course of development and causes the characteristics associated with Down syndrome. It wasn't until June 24rd, 2010 that I really…

One of the things that drives me insane about the psoriasis is what it's
doing to my scalp. My head is always dry and tight and when my hair is
down, it feels heavy. As if it's about to fall off by the root. When I
turn my head, and my hair sways, I feel like strands of my hair is being
pulled out. This is one of the reasons I've been keeping my hair in a
bun for so many months. I've try the dermatologist prescribed stuff,
Clobex Shampoo, 4 oz bottle,… Continue

Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even… Continue

It was another one of those nights when I couldn’t sleep. By 2am, one kid had woken up once, another twice, and I was wide awake from my efforts to get everyone back to sleep again. So, as I usually do, I Continue
just laid there in bed thinking. Sometimes I think about what to pack
the kids for snacks for camp. Or I wonder if I forgot to put the
laundry in the dryer. Sometimes I think about the long list of things I
haven’t been able to get to. This was one of those…

Last night I spent some time in the company of some amazing women. All mothers, all with school age kids under the age of 10, all of whom “get it”.
About a month ago, a friend and I had the idea to start a small support group. The original idea was for mothers or fathers of kids who are on the spectrum, and with the help of the school district, we Continue
reached out to parents to see if anyone wanted to meet, just to talk.
Our first meeting last month was so nice that…

Occasions, such anniversaries, are meant to be special. How can you add an extra touch to make that particular celebration even more memorable? Here are two options: you can go to a posh restaurants and spend 2 weeks of groceries on one meal, or you can do it at home. Dining at home doesn’t seem very special, let alone romantic, especially since you do it practically every day. But, as I recently found out, there are ways to create a unique and… Continue

I have been bothered lately with a heavy heart. So instead of carrying the pain around with me. I have decided to do what I could to help change peoples views. I'm hoping to help people see what I embrace
as a special gift.
I have had a few of my friends point out fact that my son is different
than most boys. To these people I ask you is that not rude to say? Were
you not taught any manners? What makes you normal and him not normal,
