I am not a special needs mom!

I firmly believe in naming a person before stating a diagnosis or other identifier. Emily is Emily! She has Cri du chat syndrome but she’s not a Cri du chat syndrome kid or a special need kid… She a young lady with special needs, the same goes for me, I am not a special need mom. I am a mom, the mom of a daughter who has special needs… Does that make sense?

Lessons from my daughter

I am a mom!


I am the mom of an amazing daughter who has special needs but I am not a special needs mom!

My needs are not specials.

What I want for my daughter is what you want for your kids.

I want her to learn and grow

I want her to reach her full potential

I want her to be happy and a little silly


I want her to have friends and be part of a team


I want her to fall in love

I want her to contribute to society

I want her to mater

I want the world to see her the way I see her


What I want for my daughter is not special at all.

I am not a special needs mom!

I am a mom!


What is special is what I had to and still have to do to get Emily anywhere near…
