Kenny just came over to me and did the sign for help. I asked him if he needs help and he shook his head yes...grabbed my hand and pulled me into the room and pointed to his box of cars that he wanted lifted!!! HE ACTUALLY COMMUNICATED WITH ME!!! This is HUGE! Every day I struggle. Every day...every minute is a struggle with guessing what Kenny wants/needs. He gets frustrated, I get frustrated...it's like trying to know what Helen Keller...seriously! I am beyond happy and grateful! I feel like speech therapy and this new school is really paying off! This added some happiness to my life today!
I am a SAHM who has been married to Tony (my soul mate) for over 15 years.
I am a twin and so is my husband. We are both artists, have 6 siblings (just the exact opposite)and now we have 7 beautiful living children and 8 angels (7 from miscarriages and Nick, Kenny's twin, who passed away 2 days after birth from complications to extreme prematurity. All of my children were born @ 34 weeks, except for the twins, they were 23 weekers and my last daughter, who was born at 36 weeks!
My family is my life! I have 6 amazing sisters and 1 brother (who is now taking care of my son Nick and my miscarried babies in heaven for me). Now I know why John died 24 years ago...it was to prepare my family and I for Nick's passing...and to be there for Nick.
I love gardening...every year I go nuts and plant a huge garden. I love jewelry and headpiece designing. My dream is to one day own my own bridal headpiece and custom jewelry boutique!
I love all crafts, painting, drawing, digital scrap booking, photography and...well...I just love to be creative.
