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.

I mean the full moon turned my Little Nuts into Little Beasties. I thought they were literally going to change into a group of wild beasts right in front of...

OK, so I know that we didn’t spend that much time in the hospital. We have definitely spent more time there before. Somehow it doesn’t matter how long you spend in the hospital, it always feels like so much longer. The nights in the emergency room felt like days! One night the nurse sat...
