Welcome to my blog!
A peek into my life as a mother to an awesome son, who through his life, has guided me to parent for him, and not what others expect parenting to be. Together, our adventure includes the rollercoaster of learning to understand hearing loss and Asperger’s.
In 2014 I founded a parent outreach and advocacy initiative, Decibles of Love, parent support for kids with hearing loss. This is living my passions; parent empowerment and the holistic development of children in a supportive family environment.
My life journey has seen 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 – some of which reflects in my posts.
Creative writing is another great passion of mine, and every once in a while you may come across a fictional post!
My personal quotes that I aspire to 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.”
