I drive a 2002 Honda Odyssey with McDonalds' french fries (much to Gena's dismay) ground into the seats and the fragrant aroma of spoiled chocolate soy milk in the carpet.
Our family is walking chaos... with three boys 5, 3, and 2, we are never far from disaster striking which usually manifests in forms like pooping from one end of the kitchen to the other or attempted shankings with broken toys.
The last 2 years have been the most challenging of my life. We have faced disaster in almost every aspect, from a failing consulting business (note to self, don't quite job and start new business in a new field with no experience in a down economy) to our older two sons being diagnosed with autism.
Autism is lonely and so many days we just can't even leave the house, so I am excited to help build a community of love and support with other moms. Being a mom is hard... with or without special needs kids! It's time for us to join together... stop judging each other, stop pretending we have it all together and just be free to be who God made us to be.
