Thanks for stopping by! 

I am a God-fearing wife, mother of two children, and a pediatric speech-language pathologist. On this blog, you will find something on all of these topics. I appreciate you reading my thoughts, stories, and tips.

Find my book, Badges of Motherhood: One Mother's Story about Family, Down syndrome, Hospitals, and Faith on Amazon. This book shares intimate stories in-depth that can't adequately be told in a short blog post. If you like the short stories on this blog, you will love the longer versions in my book. 

Some of my favorite posts on my blog are:

To the Pastor who Baptized my Daughter: Yes-children with special needs can be baptized!

Does God Make Down syndrome?: My answer to a question that bothered me for years

Order in the Chaos:  This is a really neat story of dates coming together! It is worth the read. 

A Down syndrome Parable: This is a break from my normal writing for this unique piece.
