Welcome to my blog, a peek into my world!
Here you may learn about our Neurodiversity, Asperger’s Syndrome, an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The way we experience the world around us can only be described as evolutionary – my son at times refers to us as the “special editions”.
I have many “ah-ha” moments, parenting for my child 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 focused on parent support, Decibels of Love, for three years, with an amazing team of other dedicated volunteers.
My greatest love, besides my son, is writing; and you will often come across some fictional posts or poetry.
Some of my personal quotes that I live by:
“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.
