When I was told my newborn baby had a severe brain malformation and 7 different diagnoses, my life changed in an instant. We were sucked into a vortex of medical appointments, specialist care, feeding tubes, blood tests, equipment trials, medications and therapy. I had to weather a storm so powerful, a heart ache so unbearable, and a challenge so inconceivable, that I wondered how we'd survive.
I became consumed by my daughter's challenges and felt trapped by her needs. There was never enough time, money, support or information. I struggled to cope with what her needs demanded of me and I felt broken.
I lost my sense of Self
Exhausted, unhappy and now a single parent, my heart and Soul were screaming out for something more. I missed the happiness and freedom I relished in before her diagnosis took everything away. So I made a choice to bring it back.
I never imagined being a solo parent to a child with special needs would transform my life in the most
Blind, developmentally delayed, autistic, hypotonic and reliant on medications to survive
through her darkness i saw my inner light
Through adversity and hardship I learned to redefine who I was. I released my limiting beliefs and chose to step into a higher state of Self.
I re-created inner freedom and joy and connected with the essence of who I truly am.
