I find joy by truly being aware of the Abundant Curiosities that fill my life. My blog is an accumulation of thoughts and creativity from a girl who thinks blogs are a guilty pleasure, if only to take you away from the dishes and laundry . I have a 25 yr old daughter, a 22 yr old daughter and a 17 yr old son. I mourned the loss of 2 other babies. I am blessed as a parent and endlessly proud of each of my kids. My first daughter was born to help us see the world differently....
Asperger’s Syndrome, autism spectrum
(Very specific traits were present from time of birth, was unable to officially find correct help and diagnosis til age 5 when applying for kindergarten. 2 yrs of preschool were extremely difficult without support and proper understanding, not much was known or help/programs in place in our area at the time when she was born.)
Many labels? Yes. Difficult days? Yes. Our focus: Life can be enriching rather than filled with limitations. She brings to our family a challenge... to teach the world about abilities! Busy people with simple lives, we make memories in the same house where I grew up. It is very apparent that ours is a home to kids - it is clean but rarely 100% tidy! I spend my Ohio days trying to balance what has to be done with what I prefer to do! Wishes? More time for creative ideas trapped inside my brain and the magic to stop time! A theme? Life is short. Spend an afternoon...you can't take it with you. ~Amy
