Nice to meetcha!
THIS IS CENTSIBLY SAVING SANITY, LIVING + LEARNING WITH TRISOMY 13 + AUTISM
I’m Gloria; Liam’s honest, sarcastic, potty-mouthed Mom. Liam is my eccentric, spirited, true love and homie with an extra chromie. We document living and learning with Trisomy 13, Autism, Dyspraxia, Speech Apraxia, Sensory Processing Disorder, Global Developmental Delay, Social Pragmatic Communication Disorder, and Congenital Heart Defects. Our goal is to spread awareness, kindness, and hope. We’re here to encourage and share how we successfully homeschool and complete home-therapies (including speech, occupational, physical, and ABA) without a million dollars or a straight-jacket.
Special needs parenting is incessantly rewarding and emotionally exhausting. Through the bounce-up-and-down highs and the dark-corners-of-my-mind lows, I’ll be real. Special needs-warrior mom-life is not typical but it’s my abnormal normal (and maybe yours too). Like every mom life, it’s overwhelmingly stressful, yet empowering and full of adventure. Since our journey to Trisomy 13, Liam is on the adventure of a lifetime; the quest to self-awareness, social awareness, and self-regulation.
Peek inside our abnormal normal!
