I am a Mom to my two beautiful daughters, the oldest diagnosed with ADHD and Sensory Processing Disorder and my youngest diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Global Development Delay and Sensory Processing Disorder.

It has been quite a journey, with many ups and downs, going to many different Dr’s, Therapists and Specialists. Finally getting the diagnosis, was both a relief and heart breaking at once. It left me feeling alone and unsure on what lies ahead.

When I heard of Parent Reality, I immediately joined this wonderful initiative.  Parent Reality gave me a place to belong, with other parents going through a similar journey, a place to share our highs and our lows.  I feel this journey of “Special Needs Parenting” should not be done alone, with understanding and sharing comes healing and peace.
