ABOUT THE BLOG
The Women Behind the Blog
In the fall of 2019, AC put out a group chat, including the four of us. She stated she knew we had her back and that we all had similar experiences as special needs parents but she wanted to formalize it as a group who can support each other. At our first potluck we talked for 6.5 hours until dropping eyes sent us home with our next meeting on the calendar. We turn to each other in the dark moments of parenthood, supporting each other with words, hugs, and anything else we need. We are in this together.
This is a place for us to share our stories: the good, the bad and the ugly. We don't want you to feel alone because we all need to feel connected.

I am an crafter, wife and mom. In 2019 my oldest daughter (M) was diagnosed with Austim Level One, ADHD & Dyslexia a few months after her 7th birthday. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in January 2001 and postpartum depression turned long term depression after the birth of my second child (C).
