I am a fun loving wife and mom who has recently realized I've been trying to be someone I'm not. I've backed up and taken a long look at who I really am and I am proud to be a Southern girl with family roots. My family is far from perfect but we are who we are even with the rough edges.
My husband is my best friend and he still holds my heart and can make me laugh!!! We have 5 kids ranging from 3 years to 18 years. We are expecting our first gradchild- a girl named Blaze in May!!
I live to spread Autism Awareness to a very uneducated world about this life long disease my youngest son was born with and stuggles from daily. My life changed in March of 2011. I had suspected for about a year that he had it but no one believed me, but hearing those words from a specialists mouth knocked the wind out of me. Though I spent a lot of time crying I spent more time with doctors, therapists, internet, and books educating myself and getting help for my baby boy. As bad as I felt I couldn't let self pitty get me down I knew that wasn't good for him and today he is doing fabulous! His vocabulary is only about 30 words but he is using a ! PEC book and we are looking at another communication device. His iPad is his best friend these days!
