I am married with four children. They range in age from ten to twenty. I have two girls and two boys.
I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost eleven years. He is one of those guys who does not look romantic, but is actually deeply romantic. I wake every day to a lovely note in which he calls me beautiful and tells me how much he loves me.
We were both married to other people in our pasts, but have found our missing puzzle piece in one another. We are a blended family. I brought three children into the marriage; he brought two. We had our last child together.
In 2009, when our youngest child was five, he was diagnosed with a high-functioning form of Autism, called Asperger’s Syndrome. Although this initially left us in shock and with the feeling of whiplash, we have a great support system around us and have done what we can to educate ourselves and make a better world for all of our children.
My blessings are far greater than my challenges. I am thankful every day for all that I have been given.
