Welcome to my blog!
A peek into my world, my journey to optimism as I strive to live and parent with intent.
Through this blog you may learn about our Neurodiversity (Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder) as I share with you some of my experiences. The way we experience the world around us can only be described as evolutionary!
I have many “ah-ha” moments as my relationship with my child guides me to parent for him, and not what others expect parenting to be. Together, our adventure includes the roller coaster of learning to understand hearing loss and Asperger’s.
I am passionate about parent empowerment and in 2014 I founded an initiative, Decibles of Love, parent support for kids with hearing loss. Allowing me to live this empowerment passion, helping parents understand that they are at the core of their child’s success.
My greatest love, besides my son, is writing; and you will often come across some fictional posts or poetry.
Below are my personal quotes that I live by – not always easy, but definitely doable:
“I’d rather be the odd one out than spend a lifetime trying to fit in where I don’t belong”
“Create your own Happiness”
“Live your best life even in your weakest moments”
“The art of success can be found in the ability to acknowledge that failure is not the end. Failure is an opportunity to learn, to teach, to grow and also to let go and dream a new dream.”
– Chevone Petersen
I’ve experienced hardship, poverty, abuse, destruction, loss, heartache, addiction and the resilience of the human spirit to triumph and source strength from its weakest and most vulnerable moments. I do hope that you will come across at least one post that resonates with you.
