Happy 2018 everyone!! We live in Canada and have been dealing with a lot of cold weather and snow here. It’s been one cold winter!! So my CTD kiddo takes a bus to school. My other children walk the 10 minutes to their home school down the road, but my CTD kiddo gets a bus […]

I love reading special needs blogs. They have lifted me up and carried me through some really tough years with my son. Ironically, it’s been awhile since I’ve written for this blog. I have tons of content up in my brain…. but last year I struggled to put those ideas into blog entries to help […]

At the end of the year, I like to reflect back so I can look forward and plan for the new year. 2017 has been a challenging, yet rewarding year for our family. Like any other family, life moves at warp speed sometimes, but things tend to slow down near the holidays. While every day […]

Ben’s recent Creatine Transporter Deficiency (CTD) diagnosis has hit me hard emotionally, so I thought that an honest account of these emotions could be cathartic. I have gone from feeling sorry for myself, to feeling numb, to feeling a bunch of different emotions – some rational and others not so much. Ben was just diagnosed […]

Not having a diagnosis for your child when you know something is wrong is like driving your car somewhere you’ve never been before with no directions. All you know is the general direction, and you keep moving that way, but you’re really not sure you’ll make your destination because you don’t know how to get […]

Greetings friends! Well, it is that time again as I am once more honored to be a part of your daily intake of reading. Although I often share the awesome craziness of our lives and how our three boys with CTD have gone through some tough spells, everything is on the right track now and […]

This is our story and our journey that led to our son’s diagnosis of CTD. It has been a long journey to say the least and now this new diagnosis takes us on a new path.
