Dallas Single Mom

Recently, I shared over on Instagram a deeper peek into my life as a single mama, a special needs parent and my youngest’s journey from micro-preemie to now.

It was the night of his sleep study and I was riding the wave of emotions that typically comes during testing and assessment times.  The adventure was made less harrowing by a Rockstar team at Children’s, a kid that reminds me daily that life is meant to be lived now and my own personal support structure that is with me through Heaven, Hell and High Water.  

Due to the encouragement and messages of support and resonance, I decided to share it here too, in the hopes that it will encourage another mama or papa walking the same road.  

Thoughts, questions, insight?  Feel free to share.  A tribe grows by the ties that connect us, and if I’ve learned anything at all… all parents need a tribe.
