A day in the life of a single mom raising a teenager and a child with autism. I believe that it's not what we receive, but what we give away that defines us. I want to give away all that I have learned and experienced in hopes that it will help families raising a child with autism or any disability. This is my candid journal where I open up my world and share my joys, knowledge, lessons, disappointments, challenges, frustrations, fears and successes - one day at a time.

One Down and Forever to Go
We did it, and I do mean we. Evyn, Nicky and I all survived her first week away at school. It was not without it's up's and downs; one night I was so restless I just wanted to eat...I melted gooey cheese on top of garlic potato chips and got sick! Nicky couldn't sleep and he set a record for breaking the house rules and Evyn learned roommates have something in common with family...they too are human :)
