It's hard to believe that I started my writing journey just one year ago. This past year I have my time confronting my fears and coming to terms with what life has thrown at me. I realized that I no longer have to feel ashamed for what has happened, because I was not control of other peoples actions. Once I accepted this, I was able to work through all of the emotions that I have pushed away for all these years. While I still hold out hope that I will find representation for my book so that others will also began to realize that they are not at fault for what has happened to them, I am thankful that I was able to use my writing as a way to heal myself. Words are amazing and very powerful...and you don't even have to hear them to be moved by them. Just being able to read and take in what is in front of you will be enough to capture your soul.
I have the privilege of being able to shape the minds and lives of children who are battling disabilities. It can be very trying at times, but more often than not it is very rewarding. As a mother of a child with a disability, I know the struggles that they go through on a daily basis. This allows me to have a little more compassion for the people that I work with.
