Alright, so I hope no one hates me for writing this blog. I just really feel as though it needs to be said. I am part of a few FANTASTIC special support groups online for ASD, ACC, Special Needs, etc… These groups are a bunch of fantastic women that listen to when you bitch, congratulate … More I Didn’t Choose.
My daughter will be three this weekend. It’s so crazy how time flies by. How you look at this journey that you have embarked on and realize while it is just the beginning, it is the end of a huge part of your life. It’s the end of our EI program. To tell you I … More The End of a Chapter
Sometimes in life you have to admit that you need help. For me it was last week. I have been in a funk since April. I thought I could just magically make it disappear, yet it just got worse instead of getting better. It was not until my husband called me out that I knew … More The Three D’s
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.

So much has happened since the last time I wrote about A, but then I feel like nothing has happened. If that makes sense. So I know it is July 7th but I would like to acknowledge July 2nd. You see July 2nd was very special to me, to us. It was Disorders of the … More It’s Been Awhile… Where to Start, Where to Start…
For so long, I worried about my kiddo and what was going on with her. Truth of the matter is, I still do and prob always will. Over the last month, she has made such progress and she truly is my inspiration. Yesterday we got the call about the final results of genetic testing. The … More Enjoy
I haven’t been on here for awhile. I guess I am just trying to come to terms with the information that was given to us after my daughter’s MRI. Everything seems to be making sense now that we mostly know what is going on with our beautiful little girl. So there are two things that … More Where do I begin?
For awhile now I have been debating on letting people “I know” know about Aislin. Not because I am ashamed but because social media can be a dangerous place. I don’t want the “I’m sorry” or “We didn’t know, that must be so hard, hun,” comments. I really don’t want them to say anything. What … More Light it Up Blue
