Mom of eight and married to my favorite UpcycleDaddy, I joined the special needs community five years ago with the birth of our son, Simeon (Eon) who happens to have Down syndrome. We liked him so much, we joined the adoptive community when we adopted Bogdan (Bo) from Serbia in February 2013. Bo also has Down syndrome and is rocking something we did not anticipate called autism. I’m learning as I go. I used to blog at Simeon’s Trail and Remnant of Grace but found two blogs more than I could handle.
I work full-time as an occupational therapist (for adults…go figure) and UpcycleDaddy stays home, educating the kids and making really cool stuff. I am not a together mom of many. If you see us out in the community, one of the younger kids is likely to be wearing two different shoes. We are not a gentle family and lively discussions ensue wherever we happen to be. But we love well and we laugh much and our biggest mission in life is to prove…there is grace for that.
