“I am a mother, raising two perfect children in an imperfect world.”
I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in private practice in the Midwest working with children and families with various developmental, behavioral and mental health issues. I am also the mother of 2 boys with various and varying levels of developmental and learning disabilities. They couldn’t be any different and while each have their unique challenges they also each have their unique strengths. Though I didn’t plan on it, sometimes I find the raw beauty in the honesty of both living and working “in the field”. This does not make me a special mom. It does however make parenting more of a challenge and stimulates a part of me that I did not know existed. Sort of like running through water. You go much slower, get out of breath easier and once you are in too deep sometimes you just have to turn back. But in the end, you are in much better shape than where you started.
