Dear Reader,

Hello you. Thanks for popping in. You’re wondering who I am, so let me attempt to tell you.

I write, which means I tend to observe. I am a minimalist who rejects unnecessary things. Life has taught me to seek the streamlined.

I teach college writing. I am married to Dutch (a weird pseudonym he gave himself and which I happily snatched up).

Perhaps my most consuming role is as a special needs mother. Two of my four sons have special needs; four of the four have lots of opinions.

My second son, Jack, has Macrocephaly Cutis Marmorata Telangiectasia Congenita Syndrome, or M-CMTC, also called Macrocephaly Capillary Malformation, or M-CM. In addition to some physical differences, the hallmark of this rare condition is significant cognitive impairment. He is nonverbal and has autism.

Our third son, Charlie, also has autism. He is high-functioning, verbal, and has anxiety.

My eldest and youngest sons bookend our unique family.

This blog is the story of my real life. You can’t make this stuff up.

Also, I write about faith, because this is why I am still alive.
