Kathy Costigan: MOM of 3 kid. ages 20/11/10 1 with PDD. I like my life + I know this is a year that will be life changing, in a Good Way.
Elizabeth: Wife and mum of two. My son is 16 and typically developing; my daughter is 13 and has Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, ASD, ataxic-quad CP, kidney disease, seizures, GDD and a host of other diagnoses. I work outside the home PT at a Christian bookstore and am going to schoo full-time to get credentialled as a Special Education Teacher for moderate to severe special needs.
Kerry Murphy: I am the mother of a beautiful, charming and funny little boy with a form of muscular dystrophy. Most days are good, some days are great, and other days are plain horrible. I thought I’d do some writing and share my experiences; the good, the funny, the not so good and the downright ugly. All of us deal with challenging situations in different ways, and I believe that no way is better or worse than another. These observations, stories and hints are I hope helpful, sometimes funny, maybe sad but always honest. You may not have a child with a disability; but my guess is you know and or love someone who does. This blog is for all of us.
Heather Price: First and foremost, I’m a mom of AWESOME four year old twins, both with various special needs. Chananiah has classic autism. His issues are social and communicative. Reena has hypotonia, a speech delay, and probably dyspraxia and ADHD. Her issues are physical and auditory. She’s about two years behind with gross motor skills and wears cute little foot braces. While they’re in preschool or sleeping, I run two businesses (frankly, the stress of making a full time income in part time hours while having two special needs kids is starting to get to me a bit, hence, needing the support of this group!) ARE YOU LOOKING FOR PART OR FULL TIME WORK AT HOME? I am currently interviewing for positions with both companies. Call me at 216-870-3142 to inquire. (I shortened Heather’s bio because it was so long but if you want more info about her, her kids and her businesses, please click through the link!)
Sandi Jardine: I am a 51 yr old mom of 3 kids – my 2 sons are special needs (Aspergers and ADHD) and my husband has Aspergers as well. My adult daughter is NT.
Tiffany: Hello! I’m Tiffany. I’m 24, Christian and a SAHM to two boys- ages 4 & 2! I am married and we live in OK! My youngest son, was born with Spina Bifida: Myelomeningocele so I am continuously trying to spread awareness about this disability. My boys are my whole world!

Carrie M: I’m a SAHM to Maggie (11/08) and Molly (06/10 born with Down Syndrome).
