This is the story of our family
We are an Air Force family with twins and a son that is living with autism. I am a pianist, composer, music educator, and artist, and I like to do artsy things whenever possible. My husband Alex, is a JAG and we are currently stationed at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama.
Let's rewind a bit.
|The M & Ms|
A few short weeks later, our son Jake who was 2 1/2 at the time, was diagnosed with autism and global developmental delays.
Our life as we knew it was no longer on "Plan A." It seems that most things after Alex and I had gotten married went the "Plan B" rout. One was not better then the other--just different and mostly unexpected.

Those were some crazy days....some of the best days of our lives. What did we do to cope? We slowly moved forward in baby steps until one day, without realizing it, we sort of got our balance. We still piece it together every day with creativity and love. Some days are better then others. Many days, I reflect on how I could have coped with things better, but I let myself reboot overnight and try again the next day.
