This week marks the one year anniversary of the day that I sat down and started to deal with my emotions that I had been supressing for several years. I found solice in picking up my pen and allowing my anger/tears come out onto the paper in front of me. While some parts of the book flowed right out, other chapters took me weeks to write because it was just too painful to relive. I know that there are millions of other people who may be in similar situations that do not know where to turn to find some comfort, and that is the very reason why I chose to break the silence and talk about this very personal experience. I will always be willing to connect with other survivors who are in need of a friend who can understand their pain. My contact information is in the About The Author tab ontop.
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.
