Just an average mum, with lot to say, A few friends suggested I start a blog so here we are.
I have 2 perfect children, Ella born 2011, and Reece, born 2017
My daughter just happened to be born missing a piece of a Chromosome, but there’s nothing missing from her huge personality!
She was diagnosed at just 3 weeks old with cri du chat (Don’t worry, no one else has heard of it either) and then at 6 was diagnosed with asd.
She’s non vocal, cheeky, stubborn and amazing. Being her mum has taught me so much, about myself, about the special needs community and also about the ignorance in the world.
A little while ago I started my blog on a whim, to share some insights into a condition and situation that not many people have much knowledge, and raise awareness for my daughters condition. As I’ve been writing I’ve found that I quite enjoy it and I’ve had a huge amount of support for the blog which has been amazing.
I’m sharing my journey and my thoughts, no holds barred. It’s scary putting myself out there but I feel like there is need for people to speak up! I spent so many years feeling like I was the only one. I’m putting it out there, poop stories and all.
I write about some of the toughest times in my life, but trust me when I say there is light at the end of the tunnel.
My Inbox is always open for anyone that wants to connect, have a chat, have anything they want to share or even just to have a rant to someone that understands. judgement free zone so don’t be shy!
