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.

My Oldest Nut Turned 8!

It was actually last week…maybe longer, but not too much. I can’t believe that my oldest just turned 8 and I am so close to having my 5th. What a quick, short, long, happy, hug filled, chaotic, fun, crazy, sleepless, exciting, overwhelming, jam packed 8 years it has been! I feel like there is...
