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 Domestic 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.
