I am a mom of 3, 3 and under, two with special needs, who is on one amazing life adventure to learn how to juggle it all! Life has dealt me a few lemons, but I have made them into lemonade. And it is the best tasting lemonade I have ever tasted. But, really, on this journey I am not alone. Along my side is my Saviour and King, Jesus Christ. I also have the following “characters” who you will get to know along the way.
My dearest husband. He can be the source of many funny moments, all of which I hope to share. Besides, he never reads this thing, so he wont be any wiser of it
My daughter. She received her nickname from her great grandmother. When she was told Bear’s real name, Lilibeth, she thought we said Billy Bear. Well, the name stuck and that is where it comes from. At 5 1/2 months, Bear was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms, a rare form of epilepsy in infants. It was by far the scariest thing I have ever faced, but it has made me so much stronger. I am the woman I am today because of what we have been through with Bear, and continue to go through with her. She is defying the odds today and is close to walking and talking is on its way.
My son. His name is Ryan and he is a doll. He received his nickname from his Grampy the day he was born. When we found out that he was a baby with Down syndrome, the name fit him well based on a scripture that God had spoken to us about how David had conquered both the Lion and the Bear. What encouragement based upon what all we have faced. Lion now lives up to his name by growling all the time, his first attempts at talking, right on schedule!
There are many more family members, all of which their first names will be used with the tag of Head attached.
