About the Author:

I am a mother of a 7 year old girl and a 4 3/4 year old boy (no more, no less according to him). They are "mini-me's" of my husband and I in looks and personality, and we love it! Life as a mother became even more interesting when at the age of 3 each of them were diagnosed with autism. With a lot of help and love they are both doing wonderfully and I wouldn't change a thing. In the last year I have added another title to my list of motherhood roles: foster/adoptive mom! It's been an eye opening experience to help these little ones who just need somewhere to go for short term, and we hope that we will be able to adopt through this process as well. While a native of Southern California we currently live in the beautiful Bay Area.
