I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Owain’s First Steps

I know you all have been waiting for pictures of Ariel, so I was working on that today when I came across Owain’s first steps…actually they were just moments after his first steps, but the fact that I actually had the camera in my hand when he started walking is an amazing thing in...

Today Owain is 15 Months Old, Comparing Him & Newborn Ariel

It is hard to believe that I just had a baby less than 2 weeks ago and today my little Owain is just 15 months old. It is a bit strange to have two babies around the house so close together. When the other kids were born, their siblings were much older and while...
