Family = people who inform you about a family gathering happening the next day only when they happen to run into you out shopping where the odds are not good that you would have even been seen there. People who never drop by because they ‘never’ come to town. Yet you run into them out shopping on random occasions in unlikely places.

It isn't easy being the parent of a child with special needs (youngest of three kids), let alone being in my mid - 40's. I have my ups and downs. I try to do all I can for her but I’ve put my life and goals on hold several times and I’ve realized I have to do things for myself to be the best I can be for her. I have times when I feel like she is the best thing in my life because she taught me unconditional love and patience. But I also go through bouts of feeling like a wedge has been placed between myself and my dreams and I feel hopeless. These are some of my thoughts, goals, achievements, rants and breakdowns as Sarah’s mom.
