First I'm a mom. Second I'm a wife. Third I'm a crazy DIYer who finds daily therapy in transforming my home or creating unique pieces to share or sell.
In 2005, our world turned upside-down for the better, although we didn't think it at the time. Our son, Jack was born. He's got a little thing called Down syndrome, which means he was born with one extra chromosome in each cell. That little chromosome can wreck havoc on little person's life including developmental delays and random medical issues. Our poor guy has also had two hips surgeries that put him in a body cast for over 18 weeks. And now, he has leukemia. But if Jack could express it clearly, he would say not to feel bad for him, as he will gladly bear the load for someone else. Gosh, he's so special.
And then there's Haley. Oh Haley. She was born in 2008 and is such a spitfire. I relish in her seemingly mundane achievements. She amazes me every day. And frustrates me (she is just a toddler). But I know she is Jack's little angel and they will be the best of friends.
