I am a mother of two beautiful blessings. They are both boys with dimples and infectious joy. Tyler is nearly seven years old and a goofball. Winston (Tug) is about 15 months now and his story is why I write my own.

My baby, Winston, is the reason this page exists. His birth and life provoke feelings and words in my heart that yearn for expression.  This site is not all butterflies and daisies; it is, like my new normal, laden with anguish and exultation.

I write with the hope that my words may enter the hearts of other mothers who feel isolated by their child’s situation – burdened by a diagnosis – or ecstatic about a simple step. May your strength be just enough.
