a bit about me

I am a disabled mother of two lovely boys. I am starting this blog with the hope that I will meet others like me. At the age of six I had a stroke due to a brain stem hemorrhage. It left me paralyzed on the right side of my face and the left side of my body. I have had to overcome many obstacles to get to where I am today. The most rewarding of them all is being able to be a mother. It is frustrating and challenging but I would not change a thing.

Hi Maria,

I have an Aspergers son and a multiple disability son and I look forward to reading your blog and learning from you and your experiences. I just recently began blogging as well. It's amazing how much us moms can learn from eachother.
