I am the mom of two handsome boys with 'special needs'. I love them to pieces and am so proud of their accomplishments, their love for eachother and others, and their passions. My mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the same age that I am now, and passed away within 2 years of that diagnosis. That loss had/has had a huge impact on my life. Right now it has affected me strongly once again as I am trying my best as a mom and reflecting on the fact that she has not been a part of my adult life, and my boys' lives. She was always the most supportive and encouraging, without being embarrassing. I now understand how much she put on hold to be the great mom she was to me and my sister. I am trying my best to do the same for my boys. I am learning so much from them and am so impressed by them and their peers.
