Can I tell you a secret? I’m not anyone special. I’m not a hero.
I’m just a working special needs homeschool mom who “keeps swimming” using the Power of One. That’s it!
I have good days and bad days. There are days I don’t want to get out of bed and days I take on the world. I have times of amazing productivity and success and times when I curl up on the bed and cry. That’s just how life is, isn’t it?
So, why am I here?
My oldest son has Aspergers syndrome. I write candidly for three reasons:
1) so others can see they are not alone.
2) so those not touched by special needs can get a peek at what it’s like.
3) to remind us all to choose gratitude as a perspective and look to God for strength.
You can find my writing other places, too. I’ve been privileged to be featured over at Parents Magazine’s site during Autism Awareness Month in 2011. I was the first special needs columnist for Home Educating Family Magazine. You can also find me in the book of over 40 special needs bloggers, Wit and Wisdom from the Parents of Special Needs Kids: Mostly True Stories from the Spectrum.
