How do we know when to push our kids, and when to let them find their own way? How do we know when to brush off the dirt and wipe the tears away, or let them curl up with their blanket and stay in their safe place. Finding the balance between pushing our kids outside their comfort zone and allowing them to do as they want, can be extremely difficult.

As my life is shifting and my transformation continues, so will my blog and my purpose. I will continue to share about my kids and life being an Autism Mom on Velcro Shoes. My new website will be launching soon and I will be focusing on helping YOU.
I am in the middle of battling the school district, advocating for Caden to be placed in a school where he will thrive.

The ancient superstition that bad things come in 3’s has stuck with us through the ages.
The THREE, these big bad three events that happened in our lives...I am reminded that along with the bad, there is a great deal of good. Our family got through some of the most difficult times and came out stronger and more resilient than ever. We fought the fight, never gave up hope and WE WON!
