Blessings, life lessons, struggles, and questions from a mom of of three children. My oldest had open heart surgery for TAPVR at infancy and later received toxic drugs for an arrhythmia. Today he struggles with daily challenges including depression, anxiety, SPD, auditory processing and executive function issues, and social cognition deficits.
I'm a writer, artist and mom of three kids all born within three years. I'm working on my first novel while working on essays that have been published in The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, Mamalode, and soon a piece will run on Brainchild Magazine's blog. My oldest child has special needs. Motherhood (and its complexities) has reshaped my ideas about God, my art, my marriage, my purpose, and especially about those who are marginalized. My passion is in sharing some of the honest pictures of life and the lessons that have come from our family struggles and our triumphs. I'm also influenced by my work with the homeless, my relationship with my father who suffers with Alzheimer's, and some of the other interesting characters I've met along my journey.
