Happy Dance

Ok. So I am going to try not to be too political here just because this blog is mostly intended to be about my daughter and her life with Autism and Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum. But sometimes with Special Needs, you have to be political. You have to be your child’s biggest advocate. When … More Happy Dance

The “V” Word

Ahhh… The V word. The thing that no one likes to take about. The word that may make some blush and make others just really uncomfortable. But you know what? I am going there.
