I have a wonderful 8 yr old daughter who is diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, OCD and Mood Disorder Not otherwise specified. She is the love of my life! I grew up in NJ but have lived in WA since 1995 I am divorced and would like to skip this question :-) I spend all of my time writing different entities in an attempt to advocate for my daughter and her disabilities. Any time left over, I sleep! I feel so alone in trying to advocate for my child despite being totally poor due to insane identity theft. My child is currently being abused by her school system (http://www.gofundme.com/39wdq4) and does not deserve to be abused by the system for being "different". I welcome new friendships, support, prayers and understanding of what it is to be the parent of a special needs child :-)

1.) I have one stepson but he's like my own (his mother is not involved). Eventually I plan on adopting him legally. I'm also preganant and due in Decemeber.

2.) I grew up all over the place. I was homeschooled by a tutor and my mom and we traveled everywhere. Where I call home is Northern Michigan - One side of my family lives here and that's where I am living (for now!)

3.) I met my husband in Florida at College. I was 17 (freshman) he was a senior (21), we were friends for awhile then we started dating. We got married last Spring and recently celebrated our anniversary.

4.)  I love art - drawing, painting, scuplting and music - I play the piano, gutair and violin. I also love gardening, reading, writing, photography, education and theater.

5.) On my mind today are baby names and languages (complicated to explain!).

I have a 6 year old girl and a 6 year old step son.   Grew up in Grand haven MI and still live there.  I work full time so when I get spare time I work as a independant distributor for It works.  Its fun and I earn extra cash. My daughter loves helping me.  We call it our mom and daughter time.

I can't wait to get know other moms with similar situations with two six year olds with as a  step child.  And learn fun ways to keep them learning in the summer time while school is out.

A. I am pregnant with my first and it will be a boy.

2. Where did you grow up and where do you live now?
A. I was born and raised in Oklahoma spent ten years on and off in Washington and now I live in Las Vegas as of just about a month ago.

3. Where did you meet your husband / significant other?
A. My husband was a family friend I knew him since I was ten and always had a crush on him when I turned 16 we started dating.

4. What do you like to do when you have time to yourself?
A. I have nothing but time right now since I'm on bed rest its actually very boring and driving me crazy.

5. What's on your mind today?
A. As I said being on bed rest is really boring and I had signed up for cafemom when I was 17 and pregnant I lost it after two months so I figured I would sign back up so I could find people to talk to
