Parenting... the art of loving with your heart and soul without losing your mind.

"I loved my daughter so much.   It hurt so much when she struggled.  It broke my heart when she said "kiss it and make it better mommy,"  at age 4.  It hurt just as much when she said "I wish I had a normal brain like everyone else" at age 16.    I remember the feeling of helplessness. 

I would have done anything to make life easier for her. "

"And it drove me crazy sometimes.  The mood swings, the unpredictability.  Anything I said could trigger the next big meltdown.   It would sometimes take hours to even figure out what it was.  And then, it would be the littlest of things.  I was so confused. I didn't get it. "

"I reconnected to who I really was with coaching.  I stopped parenting from a place of fear and judgement.  I started parenting from a place of strength and passion.  I am someone who loves deeply and perseveres to the end.  I am someone who loves to learn and has to dance.  Life didn't stop me from being me anymore.  I was able to embrace it again!"
